POOR GIRL STUDENT MOVES DELHI HC ON DENIAL OF ADMISSION IN GOVT SCHOOL – HEARING TOMORROW
Kumari Neha has filed a petition through Advocate Ashok Agarwal in Delhi High Court questioning inaction on the part of the Government Sarvodya Girls Senior School, Kera Kurd to grant admission to her in Class XI in the academic year 2012-13 and also allow her to attend classes as she has passed Class X from the same school in the academic year 2011-12.
The petition states that Neha could not get admission in class XI as she suffered from Jaundice, typhoid and anemia and remained under medical treatment from 31.07.2012 to 14.09.2012 under Government Dispensary. On getting recovered from her illness, she approached the school in September 2012 for admission but the school denied her admission without any valid reason. Since then, Neha and her father Ashok Sharma(M-9213518566) are running from pillar to post but till date the school has not granted her admission and now she is forced to approach the Hon’ble Delhi High Court for relief.
It is unfortunate, that the Government of Delhi which claims that it works for the welfare of girl students, has literally punished the poor girl Neha by denial of admission. The Government did not move even after receiving a legal notice dated 11.12.2012 from Advocate Ashok Agarwal, Advisor Social Jurist.
“Neha cannot be denied admission in such cases where he could not join the school on account of her illness. A student cannot be legally asked to wait for another year as she may either lose interest in studies or may go astray on account of the passage of time,” submitted the petitioner.
Case is listed for 14.01.2013 for hearing in the Court of Justice G.S.Sistani.
Ashok Agarwal, Advocate
