The Archaeological Survey of India ordered an inquiry after a group of students from Manipur were allegedly stopped from entering the Taj Mahal by CISF personnel, who demanded that they produce proof of their nationality. The students were later allowed entry following the intervention of local police, after which they lodged a written complaint with ASI officials alleging discrimination. According to their complaint, the students — who were from the Central Agricultural University in Imphal — had gone to visit the monument as part of an all-India educational tour. They were allegedly barred from entry on grounds that they “resembled foreigners” trying to pass off as Indians so they could enter with cheaper tickets. The complaint further alleged that the CISF personnel did not relent even after the students produced their ID cards and a letter which stated that they were on a national tour.
