The Delhi High Court said that depriving a child of education should not be tolerated and that no child should suffer on the education front because his parents are in prison.The court acted suo motu to assist the SHO in admitting the child to a junior branch of a school in which her elder sibling is studying, and asked the principal to provide full assistance.The right to education has been afforded to every child, regardless of race, faith, sexuality, or economic status.Justice Swarna Kanta Sharma said that an educated individual can make informed decisions first for themselves and then be able to contribute constructively to the development of the nation and society as a whole.Because their parents have been in legal custody for a crime that has yet to be decided upon by the court, a child should not suffer the consequences.

The child's mother was pleading for interim bail.A trial court had earlier refused her interim bail plea.She told the judge that her elder daughter was enrolled in a Delhi municipal corporation school and that her younger daughter could also be accepted there.The child must be admitted to a college at the veryearliest and was given a 10-day compliance report by the judge.
