Justice Rekha Palli asked the JNU administration to treat the plea of the student as a representation and keep in mind the circumstances under which she was compelled to abandon her studies while considering her request to complete the course.
The university, represented by advocate Harsh Ahuja, assured the court that the student's plea would be taken up as a representation at the next academic council meeting in July and that her request would be considered sympathetically.
Taking note of the assurance given by the university, the court directed it to pass a "reasoned and speaking order" within eight weeks and dispose of the student's plea.
The woman had moved the court after the university denied her permission to complete her MA in German literature on the ground that she had exceeded the time within which she had to finish the course.
Due to the harassment, she suffered immense trauma and underwent counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the student had claimed in her plea.
Due to the trauma, she had not attended any classes in the winter session semesters of 2014-15 and 2015-16. However, when she had sought the relief in 2016-17, the university had denied her request.
The JNU had, on March 16 this year, struck her off the university's rolls.
