Tattoo will not interfere with duty, said Bombay High Court
Bombay high court has provided much relief to a man with tattoos who was rejected by the Central Industrial Security Force – CISF.
Shridhar Pakhare of Solapur, Maharshttra had applied for the post of constable-cum-driver with the CISF. However, he was rejected by the CISF on the grounds that he had a tattoo on his forearm.
Shridhar Pakhare had then petitioned to the court against the decision of the CISF.
The court said that tattoos will not be interfering in the duties given to Pakhare as he had been found eligible in all criteria and had cleared the written test and medical examination.
Also the court observed that the tattoo was of a religious symbol and therefore Shridhar Pakhare’s religious sentiments must be respected.
