BENGALURU:The High Court on Thursday dismissed a plea filed by an engineering student from Channapatna, seeking the announcement of her seventh semester result.
Justice B V Nagarathna said the petitioner, Samskruti (name changed), had only 50 per cent attendance in her seventh semester.
Even the vice-chancellor cannot condone more than 10 per cent shortage in attendance according to rules.
Therefore, the court cannot do anything, the judge said and advised Samskruti to earn the requisite attendance and continue her studies.
Samskruti had appeared for the examination in December 2014 based on a conditional interim order by the court.
Samskruti, a student of Sampoorna Group of Institutions in Channapatna taluk of Ramanagaram district, later filed another petition seeking directions to the principal of the college and Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belagavi, to declare her result.
Samskruti had claimed that she could not attend classes as she was kidnapped by one Prasad on July 28, 2014, who forced her to marry him at knife point in August 2014. Later, she was rescued by the police.
