The decision came when violence related to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in North East Delhi where 13 people have died. The Delhi High Court said that the safety of children cannot be put at risk and therefore asked the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) to decide on rescheduling Wednesday’s board exam.
The court also directed CBSE to change the examination centre with proper infrastructure and security from New Sandhya Public School to a centre located in east Delhi district.
The decision was taken by the education board to “avoid inconvenience to students, staff and parents” on a request by the Delhi government’s directorate of education.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, “Northeast Delhi Schools will be also closed for the second day on Wednesday.” All internal examinations have also been postponed in government and private schools.
It was hearing a plea by a Bhai Parmanand Vidya Mandir at Surya Niketan in east Delhi private school, and some of its Class 12 and 10 students said that the centre allotted to them is 16 km away from their school in Chandu Nagar-Karawal Nagar road, which is one of the violence-hit areas. It’s difficult for them to reach the centre due to riots in the area.
