A 24-year-old Spanish woman was refused entry into the apartment complex of an Indian bachelor in the northern Indian city of Gurgaon.
The Spanish woman was stopped by security guards at the Palm Grove Heights complex, where Mohit Agarwal was staying, and told girls were not allowed into unmarried men's homes.
The 24-year-old had arrived in India last month to intern with a human rights group and had intended to stay with Agarwal for a few days.
"There was no basis from (sic) stopping her to enter my house, except that these guys took it upon themselves to morally police us," Agarwal wrote in a Facebook post.
Agarwal's post immediately went viral, with numerous people condemning the moral policing.
The Palm Grove Heights complex is run by the US-based Colliers International real estate management firm which, according to multiple media reports, said the "exclusion" rules were framed by the residents' society.
"It was super humiliating. With all the shameful insinuations flying around. Less for us and more for the person who has just landed in India -- ironically a mild taste of what human rights violation in India feels like. Finally she had to go rent a hotel," Agarwal wrote.
