New Delhi, July 26 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Tuesday directed the Delhi government to re-admit a girl student of a government school who had flunked her Class 12 examination.

Justice Kailash Gambhir, while hearing the petition of Kumari Radha, directed the Delhi government’s education department and Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya for Girls in east Delhi’ Dayalpur area to make sure that she is re-admitted to Class 12 before the next date of hearing Thursday.

The directions came on the petition filed by Radha’s counsel Ashok Agarwal, who said that she approached her school in May this year after she failed in the Class 12 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) examination.

“However, the principal refused to grant re-admission, saying that failed students are not re-admitted in government schools,” said the petition.

The petition argued that Radha was entitled to re-admission as per the Delhi School Education Rules, 1973.

Agarwal added that Radha’s father is a vegetable hawker who earned just Rs.100-150 per day and despite the adverse conditions, Radha wished to continue her studies.
