A boy who lost his father in the 2011 Delhi High Court blast was offered relief by the court as it asked the executive director of School of Open Learning (SOL) to sympathetically consider application for the admission of Rishab.

Sangita Ashok,the wife of blast victim Ashok Kumar Sharma,had told the court that her son Rishab Sharma was depressed as he wasn’t able to secure admission in a college/course of his choice despite the court‚Äôs directive that children of the victims were to be rehabilitated. The university denied him admission as he was unable to fill the form in the prescribed format.Yesterday,the counsel for DU said that admission to regular college was not possible as admissions closed on 31st August 2017.
