A female student from the University of Hyderabad (UoH) on Tuesday lodged a complaint against a security supervisor for allegedly passing perverted comments when she sought permission for her male friend to be let inside the campus.

The security person in question, who was from a private agency, did not allow the visitor initially, citing the High Court order. 

The complaint was reportedly lodged with UoH registrar P Sardar Singh, deputy registrar, following which the officials concerned, assured to take action on the issue.

The incident is said to have occurred earlier this week, following which the student took to Facebook, to recall the incident.

Saying that her friend was stopped a lot of times at the main gate since he was an outsider, she wrote that "he gives them his personal id and takes a visitor pass. The security has been tight the last one week. They weren't allowing any outsiders."

She goes on to add that when she went to speak to the security, she was told that the High Court orders prohibited them from sending anyone inside.

Following this, she alleged that the security officer in question asked her questions like, "Why do you need to take him inside? What is it that you want to do with him? What is it that you want to talk to him about?"

The student also claimed that when she said that she needed her friend for an hour, the security officer burst into laughter.

"I sensed there was a vulgar intention behind the laughter...I could see perversion on their faces," she wrote.

"The very attitude towards the fact that a girl has a male visitor is appalling. Who gave them the power to treat students like that? What did they visualise? Why the cheap perverted scrutiny before letting us in? As I speak to people about it, I came to know that I was not the only one who had faced this humiliation. A lot of female faculty had similar experiences and filed cases, but no action was taken...Once again I realise that the campus has been a concentration camp for over a year now. This hurts me," she concluded.
