Brief Facts of the Case 

The Bench consists of Justice Jayant Nath in the present case. The Court quashed the order of the University. It was noted that the University completely failed to follow the statutory rule. Also, the university was unable to inform the student at least 5 calendar days before the examination.

The Petitioner was then allowed to sit for the V semester exams and get attendance for the VI semester. The Petitioner claimed that the University never informed the students of their detention. It was further stated, that as per clause 9.2 of the Ordinance the Dean is responsible to announce the list of such students, and the students should get information at least 5 calendar days before the start of the examination.
