Delhi High Court has asked the AAP government to look into allegations of corrupt practices, including collection of donations from parents, against a government-aided school here, its Principal and other staff members.
A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal asked the Directorate of Education (DoE) of the Delhi government to "take a decision within three months" on a PIL which has made the allegations against the school.
"The petition is disposed of with a direction to the respondent (DoE) to look into the matter and consider it. The order be communicated to the petitioner in three months," the court said.
The petition, by Arun Kashyap and M R Mahapatra, has alleged that the Principal of PGDAV Senior Secondary School here connived with other staff to collect money from parents of students during examination time.
The petitioners, who claim to be social workers, have contended that the grants and aid given to the school by the government was being "misappropriated and misused" by the institution which was also collecting donations from parents during examination and admission time.
In their plea, filed through advocate Anup Kumar Das, they have claimed that they had sent two complaints to the government which had forwarded it to DoE, but no action has been taken till date.
