Aizawl: A students body in Mizoram on Tuesday
urged the state government to impose a ban on use of cell
phones in school and prohibit tattoos.

The Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP) said cell phones are not
only a source of disturbance and indiscipline but also used
for circulating porn images and videos.

In a statement, MZP said tattoos cause health hazards
and mental problems.

Earlier, the students body had appealed to the
government to issue a dress code in schools to put a ban on
extremely short and revealing skirts for girls.

The MZP also asked the government to formulate uniform
admission and tuition fees for government as well as private
institutions.
