Issue: 

After the state government promised free education, a minor gangrape victim’s education was endangered since she didn’t pay her school fees.

Facts:

  • In 2018, the state government sent Survivor and her sister to a private school.
  • Only the first year’s fees were paid; the remaining amount owed is Rs 14 lakh.
  • Regarding the dues, the school sent notices to the authorities and the victim’s relatives.

Arguments:

  • MP HC: Based on a news article exposing the betrayal of the survivor’s commitment, the court took suo motu cognizance.
  • State Government: The excerpt makes no formal arguments.
  • School: Said the issue was fixed and the notification was a mistake caused by staff mishap.

Judgement:

  • The school and the state government received notifications from MP HC, which handled the case as a PIL.
