NEW DELHI, June 28 - Union Ministry of Urban Development has sought a factual report from the Delhi Golf Club over its staffers asking a woman from Meghalaya to leave a dining room because her traditional Khasi attire looked like a �maid�s uniform�.

Dubbing the incident as �regrettable and unfortunate�, a senior official in the Urban Development Ministry said, �We have sought a report from the Club authorities. Appropriate action will be initiated if the Club is found violating human rights norms�.

Meanwhile, Rijiju raised the matter with the Ministry after Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma discussed the issue with the Minister.

�I will also speak to the Urban Development Ministry on how such privileges can be given to people with such mindsets,� he said about the Club, which occupies prime land in the heart of the national capital.
