School told to admit visually-impaired girls

School told to admit visually-impaired girls
The Delhi High Court has directed a private school to admit two poor visually-impaired girl students to Class XI during the current session and also to provide hostel accommodation to them.

A division bench of Chief Justice D Murugesan and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw Wednesday issued direction to the government-aided school in Vikaspuri in west Delhi on the petition of NGO Social Jurist.

NGO’s advocate Ashok Agarwal said that the school had denied admission to Kumari Sita and Kumari Ranjana ‘arbitrarily’.
‘Despite an intervention by the chief commissioner for persons with disabilities and the directorate of education, the school did not grant admission to these unfortunate but deserving students,’ he said.

The two girls had been studying in the school since Class 6 and had appeared and passed Class X examination from there, the petition said.
