GUWAHATI, Nov 26 - The Gauhati High Court today expressed its displeasure over non-compliance with its earlier order wherein it had asked celebrated mathematician Anand Kumar to personally appear before it, and further directed him to appear before the High Court on November 28. Further, the court directed Kumar to pay Rs 10,000 each to the guardians and students who came to the court from different parts of the country.
Senior advocate Dr Ashok Saraf appeared for the petitioners, while senior advocate Niloy Dutta appeared for Kumar. Senior advocate KN Choudhary represented Abhayanand, former DGP of Bihar Police.
Amit Goyal, advocate for the petitioners, informed that the mathematician against whom the PIL was filed before the court, has not replied to the allegations of the IIT students as directed by the High Court. Abhayanand in his reply filed before the High Court, stated that Kumar had deficiencies in his mathematical thought process.
Four IIT Guwahati students had approached the Gauhati High Court alleging that Anand Kumar who is projecting himself as a �messiah� of poor IIT aspirants, is actually making IIT aspirants pay huge sums of money by enrolling them in a private coaching institute.
The petitioners also accused Kumar of wrongly projecting the result of his �Super 30� initiative.
