College says student had attendance shortage

The Oxford Independent PU College in Sir M Vishveshvaraiah Layout on Friday said that it had not withheld the II PUC results of the petitioner, Radhika Garg, who had argued her own case in the High Court on Thursday, as a party in person after her advocates retired from the case.

In a statement, the college maintained that an interlocutory application filed by the petitioner before the High Court seeking directions to the PUC Board to announce her results is still pending. “Therefore, the question of either us or the PUC Board announcing the results does not arise,” the college management said.

Insisting that the petitioner had shortage of attendance, the college said: “The institution is statutorily bound to debar her from writing examinations as per Rule 12 of Karnataka Pre-University (Academic etc.) Rules 2006.

Our institution does not have any discretion in this regard.” The college also refuted the charge that the attendance sheet was manipulated stating that it had no reason to seek vengeance as alleged.
