A girl student of the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), who was allegedly harassed by two students on the campus earlier this month, on Thursday approached the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students' union for help.

The girl, who faced the wrath of the AMU students for wearing a T-shirt and a pair of jeans to college, met JNU students' union President Mona Das and Vice President Dhananjay Tripathi, seeking help in the matter.

Two motorcycle-borne students had reportedly taken off the shawl the girl was wearing while she was walking around the university campus on February 2.

She had approached the AMU Vice Chancellor, Naseem Ahmad, with her complaint but the pleas were allegedly ignored. Following this, she had lodged an FIR at an Aligarh police station.

Students of AMU had also reportedly warned her against wearing a T-shirt and jeans to college, claiming the "dress code" on the campus was restricted to salwar kameez and dupatta.
