asked the college to respond to the allegations of a student

Chandran whose application for admission was not accepted last
year despite being first on the wait list and some other
candidate was admitted whose name did not figure in the list.
The petition, which was earlier heard by a single judge,

The court, after hearing his arguments, issued a notice
to the college, its sports convenor and the University of
Delhi to which SRCC is affiliated.
The court asked them to file their responses by the next
