BANGALORE: For the first time in the history of the Karnataka High Court, an 18 year-old student argued her case as a party in person on Thursday.

Radhika Garv from New Delhi,  a II PUC student at Oxford Pre-University College-Ullal, had filed a petition in February, alleging that the college authority was not permitting her to write the exams due to “shortage of attendance”.

The court passed an interim order, directing the PU  Board to allow her to appear for the exams, pending final disposal of the case. Garv wrote the exams, but the Board withheld her results.

She again approached the court for announcement of the results. Meanwhile, her two counsels retired, and Garv chose to argue her case herself. She said the facilities provided at the college were very poor, but the college management asked her father to give a letter stating that it was providing good facilities. He, however, refused to do so.  

Justice Ashok B Hinchigeri directed the Education Officer to visit the college and submit a report in 10 days.
