Adishree Gopalkrishnan, a student expelled from the school, Vibgyor High at Goregaon, has filed a petition in the Bombay High Court on Tuesday, seeking the court's intervention to return to school.
Adishree (13) was asked to leave the school on June 2 after a fee-related tussle between the school and her mother, Avisha Kulkarni.
The petition asserts Adishree's right to education and says that she has been asked to leave the school for no fault of hers.
The reason cited by the school was that Adishree's mother had filed a “false and unwarranted” police complaint against the school management in July 2009 alleging that she feared that the school will physically harm her and her daughter.
Avisha had previously stated that despite taking the school fees for the year and being promoted to the next class, the school refused to allow her daughter to study there.
The petition is likely to be heard on Wednesday.
