Delhi restaurant that denied entry to a saree clad woman closed
New Delhi : A restaurant in Delhi that had allegedly denied an entry to a saree-clad woman recently has been served a closure notice for operating without a proper trade license.
SDMC officials on Wednesday claimed that they have served a closure notice to the Aquila Restaurant located at Ansal Plaza in Andrews Ganj for operating without a valid licence.
"The public health inspector again inspected the site on September 24 and found that the trade is running under the same condition. You are directed to close the trade within 48 hours of the receipt of this notice failing which suitable action including sealing will be taken without assigning further notice," the SDMC notice issued to the restaurant-owner said.
Following the notice, the owner said, "I have closed-down the above said trade immediately and 1 shall not run the same trade without SDMC Trade Licence under insanitary condition from health point of view and create nuisance."
Last week, a woman had posted a video on social media showing a staffer from the restaurant denying her entry because she was wearing a saree which apparently does not come under smart casuals.
Later, the restaurant claimed that the incident was "misrepresented".
