Law students filed a case in Delhi HC for seeking transparency in NLU-D’s Moot court competition relating to the records and marks.
18th October, 2020
The students of the University of law college (ULC), Utkal University, and Bhubaneswar namely, Debashish Kumar Panda, Deep Kumar Mahanty and Dinesh Kumar Samanta, had filed a case on the Moot competition committee of NLU-D to release the marks obtained by the petitioners in the memorial round of 70th Constitution Day Moot Court competition before the bench of Justice Jayant Nath. And they had said that they had removed from the competition suddenly and the University intimated that there was some error in the score and petitioners were not shortlisted for the final list. So the petitioner’s team is requesting it to disclose the marks obtained and there is no response by the moot court committee. Here the theme of the Moot court committee had failed to do its duty in organizing and to maintain transparency. And they stated that it resulted in embarrassment and non- disclosure of marks obtained by them gives the impression of being not genuine and invalidates the test of reasonableness under Article 14 of the Constitution.
