Harassment to students by Ryan International School: High Court orders permission for exams

Bangalore, Feb, 19; The High Court passed an interim order allowing two students of Ryan International School Bannerghatta Road to appear for examinations, which will commence from February 20th.

The parents are literally waging a legal war against Ryan International School against the attitude of not allowing their children to write exams.

Earlier on Nov 11, 2022, it has been said that school principal had suspended both siblings studying in the school for past 9 years for no valid reason except to her personal motive. Those siblings were not called back to school and finally parent had to knock at the doors of high court through a writ petition.

The aggrieved parents had approached state child rights committee too and the committee directed the DDPI and BEO to enquire and submit a report. However, DDPI and BEO too failed to do so.

Later, a bench headed by High Court Justice Nagaprasanna conducted an inquiry and ordered that the 9th class student be allowed to write the examination.

Harishankar, a parent, said his two children were studying in class 9 and 10 were subjected to harassment for one-and-a-half years. Especially the principal, Preeti Seth, was constantly harassing mentally and physically. A police complaint was also lodged.

Later he brought the matter to the attention of the National Commission for Child Rights. Subsequently. the National Commission had directed to take approach court.
