New Delhi, July 15 (IANS) A petition has been filed in the Delhi High Court by the father of three young sisters against a government-run school which allegedly refused to admit them.

The petition is likely to come up Tuesday for hearing.

The father, Hari Ram, said in the petition filed through advocate Ashok Agarwal that he approached the Rajkiya Sarvodya Kanya Vidyayalaya at Nanglio as he could not afford the high fees of private schools.

He wanted the girls admitted in Class 6, 4 and 2 in the school located near his house.

The plea said: "Despite repeated requests, the school has not given admission to the girls and they are sitting idle though the schools have reopened.

"They are not only entitled to admission in the school but are also entitled to adequate compensation from the Delhi government on account of violation of their right to education."

It said the daughters were entitled to get admission in any school near their residence.

The girls, aged 12, 8 and 6 years, possessed valid TC (transfer certificate) from the previous private school. The father found it tough to pay the fees in the private school.
