HC seeks govt reply on Pak family’s plea
New Delhi: Delhi high court on Friday sought the response of the AAP government on a Pakistan national’s plea against denial of admission to his three children by a state-run school in the city. Justice Rajiv Shakdher issued notices to the Directorate of Education and the school and asked them to file their replies to the petition which claims that admission was “unjustly” denied to his wards.
Gulsher, who migrated to India from Pakistan with his family in May this year, has also challenged a Delhi government circular of 2016 that lays down the upper age limit for admission in various classes in the state-run schools.
The court listed the matter for hearing on October 17.
The petition, filed through advocate Ashok Agarwal, said three children — two girls and a boy — were registered for admission in Class IX on July 5 and were allowed to attend classes from July 8 to September 14 when they were “unceremoniously” removed from the school.
It said the children had already bought books, uniforms and other study material.
