A woman who was charged in court with disorderly behaviour outside a restaurant in Little India created a stir in open court when she claimed that she had been treated unfairly.

R. Angelina is accused of shouting and gesticulating her arms outside Fakruddin restaurant at Desker Road last Saturday.

The 40-year-old woman, represented by Mr M. Ravi, told the court that she had brought her friend, a transsexual, to the restaurant but was told by the "owner" that the place was meant for only tourists, men and women.

Angelina asked why she and her lady friend could not patronise the restaurant as they were paying.
