Lucknow: At least in Nimtulnisha case the justice has prevailed. A grand-mother who adopted two children of her daughter has won a long legal battle. The children will be admitted to the school where she was teaching, a demand which was denied to her by the school management.
The management had refused admission on the ground that she was not her children and that this facility was given only to such wards. The judgement given on Thursday by a single bench of Allahabad high court consisting of Justice D K Upadhyay may cause a re-thinking among the committees which have framed such rules. The Central Board of Secondary Education too may re-visit the issue.
The granny is happy because she had not done anything illegal and adopted the children under the Child Protection and Adoption Act, 1890 still she was denied the facility.
The children were studying at a different place away from her love and care. The re-union with the granny will make them happy too.
Her story outside the court was as pathetic. These children were left in the cold by their mother who married another person after death of her first husband. Hubby died in January 2014 and she re-married after a year.
The granny legally adopted her children and then asked the school management to admit them to the school which was refused.
