While taking on record the affidavit a bench of Justices A.S. Oka and Ujjal Bhuyan told the state’s additional advocate-general Garima Prashad that the court would also examine the “wider issues” relating to the implementation of the Right to Education Act, 2009, and the applicability of the Juvenile Justice Act at the next hearing on April 15.
