India hotel refuses room to solo female traveller...

The plight of a female artist who was refused a hotel room in the southern city of Hyderabad as she was a solo traveller has gone viral in India.

Nupur Saraswat, a spoken word artist, told the BBC she was in the city for a performance but was told by her hotel that "single ladies" were not allowed.

The hotel has argued that the area it is in "is not [the] right place" for single women.

Under the hotel policies, "locals and unmarried couples" are also forbidden.

Ms Saraswat, who lives in Singapore, wrote about Friday morning's incident at Hotel Deccan Erragadda on her Facebook page. Full story...
