Kathmandu, September 11:

A student, today filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court seeking its order to the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital to admit him for an MBBS course. The TUTH had earlier, refused to take in Chandra Sekhar Pant into the MBBS course saying he was over-aged by two months and 19 days. The medical college has a provision to admit only students under the age of 25 for the five-year course of MBBS. The petitioner has challenged the decision which had refused his admission citing over-age, claiming, it violated his rights guaranteed by the Articles 11,12,17,18, 23 and 88 (1) and (2) of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Nepal. Pant has said the TUTH has violated his right to education and claimed that even an old person must get an opportunity to get admission in any college for acquiring education.
