DU law student moves SC, asks for permission to appear for LLB exam

Latest Update: SC declines DU law student's plea to take LLB exam

A plea filed by a DU law student seeking relaxation of attendance and permission to take her LLB exams has been dismissed by the Supreme Court.

The plea filed by Ankita Meena was declined by a two-judge bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Navin Sinha.

The SC bench dismissed the SLP saying, “we cannot direct at 1 PM that a candidate may be allowed to take the examination at 2 PM…”.

Story so far:

The Supreme Court today will hear a plea filed by a pregnant LLB student of Delhi University (DU) seeking permission to allow her to appear in the ongoing LLB exam.

The 27-year-old law student, a fourth semester LLB student, in her plea said she could not meet the requisite 70 percent attendance criteria as she was pregnant at the time. Because of this, the woman was detained and barred from taking the exams.

The woman then approached the Delhi High Court (HC) against the said decision. However, HC dismissed her plea following which the petitioner moved the Supreme Court (SC) challenging the HC’s order to refuse interim relief to appear for the examination.  

The matter was mentioned before a two-judge bench of SC justices A M Khanwilkar and Navin Sinha on Tuesday (May 22), which fixed the hearing for Wednesday.
