HYDERABAD: Making it clear that the court would not be concerned with legal niceties while dealing with cases pertaining to child’s rights and their future, a division bench of Hyderabad High Court on Thursday directed the management of Hyderabad Public School to respond to a plea seeking demotion for a student from class 2 to 1.

The bench was dealing with an appeal filed by the grand mother of the student, K Advetya, seeking direction to the school management to demote the student from class 2 to 1.Earlier, a single judge dismissed her petition that contended the child could not academically cope with the standards of class 2 and therefore must be sent to class 1. Aggrieved, she approached the division bench.

While dealing with the appeal, the bench wondered why the child was admitted to class 2 when he could not cope with it. The counsel for school pointed out that the child’s admission into class 2 was based on an application. The bench adjourned the case till Monday to enable the school management to respond to the matter.
