The Supreme Court on Friday allowed Kerala to conduct examinations in eleven direct colleges (offline), expressing satisfaction over the coroner’s testimony of taking proper care of students in the situation.
Justice A. M. Khanwilkar and c. T. Ravi Kumar’s bench, while allowing Kerala to conduct the Eleventh Examination, made special mention of matters relating to the Karona Saath Rules, mainly in the detailed affidavit filed by the state.
“A holistic approach has been taken in this regard and the concerned government agencies are aware of their duty,” the court said in its affidavit. The detailed affidavit filed by Kerala testified that all preventive measures were planned, the court said.
A petition challenging the Kerala High Court’s decision to refuse to intervene in the Kerala government’s decision to conduct the 11th direct examination has been filed by Adv. Rasunshan A. His petition was rejected by the Supreme Court.
The court also said that the Kerala government as well as the concerned government agencies have taken necessary steps to prevent the students from getting infected.
