News Article Covered By Jiya Jain
A bench of Justice Jayant Nath passed an order in a writ petition filed by Mohd. Munis Siddique, a law graduate, through Advocate Harpreet Singh Hora and Himangi Kapoor.
The petitioner’s grievance was that the University had not given him his marksheet, degree and other important documents, due to which he lost possible opportunities for higher education and employment. For availing the same, the petitioner had been making efforts since July, 2020.
The plea stated that University failed to enroll the law graduate to the bar council because of which the petitioner had to suffer losses.
On the final day of arguments, it was informed to the Court that the University had only given the marksheet, but without the requisite degree and documents, it was of no use to the petitioner.
The University’s Counsel, Advocate Ibad Mustaq, stated that the petitioner had to apply for the same online and a degree would be made available to him.
The Hon’ble Court had directed the University to communicate the compliances to the petitioner. The university will ensure that the degree, along with the necessary documents, be given to the petitioner within three days.
On this note, the Bench disposed of the writ petition and all the pending applications, if any.
