| Wednesday | 1st July, 2020
New Delhi: Amid protests against the online open book exams notified by the Delhi University, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday fumed over the varsity's decision to postpone the examinations by 10 days without informing it and issued a notice to the university, asking it to explain why contempt proceedings should not be initiated against it.
However, "this did not happen," the court said.
The bench added, "In view of the aforesaid conduct, we are prima facie of the opinion that contempt proceedings ought to be initiated against the Delhi University and its officers for withholding material information from the court and trying to mislead the court."
It has listed the matter for hearing on July 6.
The petition had also sought that directions be issued to the Centre for setting up an effective mechanism for visually impaired and specially-abled persons so that educational instructions can be transmitted to them properly and teaching material is provided to them through online mode of teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.
