New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has termed as "illegal" the refusal by the Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) to admit a student in sports quota even after he passed the test and asked the college to accommodate him.

"The action of the college and the University officials in denying admission to the petitioner in the course is arbitrary, illegal and in denial of principles of fair play," Justice Anil Kumar said and imposed a cost of Rs 20,000 on SRCC and the University of Delhi.

Justice Kumar directed the college to accommodate Rohan Tomar who was refused admission despite having secured the same points on sports quota with another student who was selected.

The court passed the order on a petition by Tomar who had pleaded that despite the policy of the college to accommodate students having same marks, he was denied admission.

The rule regarding the admission in sports quota provided that it will be made on the basis of level of competency of candidates who have achieved distinction in sports during last three years.
