HC stays order allowing girl to study MBBS abroad
A division bench of HC comprising ACJ Ramesh Ranganathan and justice Abhinand Kumar Shavli, on Thursday, stayed the order of a single judge who permitted a 16-year-old-girl to study MBBS at a foreign university. The bench gave this interim order on an appeal made by the Medical Council of India (MCI).
As for the case, Mallesh from Nalgonda district filed a writ petition complaining that his 16-year-old daughter was ready to join a foreign university for MBBS course but the MCI rejected her application for permission. Dealing with petition, a single judge permitted her to pursue the course. The MCI filed an appeal before the division bench. After hearing the case, the bench suspended the order of single judge. When the rules do not permit a student aged below 17 years to study MBBS, the parents should not pressure the student, the bench observed.
