In an unusual order, the Delhi high court asked six students of Ramjas College to teach and read out lessons to visually challenged students of the college. They are to undertake the exercise for one hour every week for a year.

This was a precondition set by justice Hima Kohli while quashing FIRs against them for causing damage to the college during a fight between students of the college and inmates of the hostel on September 3, 2009.

They had been booked under the prevention of damage to public property act for breaking the college gates and glasses of the committee room of the college by hurling stones. There were four students in one group while the other had two. The court had quashed FIRs against only two while the plea of others will be heard on May 3.

The complaint had been filed by the college hostel warden at the Maurice Nagar police station. The students had approached the court seeking quashing of the FIR after they arrived at a compromise with the college and hostel authorities.

Justice Kohli agreed to quash the FIRs on a condition that they will teach and read out lessons to visually challenged students of the college for one hour every week for a year.

The court had entrusted the task of overseeing if the students were serving the blind students, to the hostel warden.
