The Supreme Court Monday issued notice to the centre and all the states on a petition saying there should be no discrimination on admitting HIV positive children to schools.

An apex court bench headed by Justice B.S. Chauhan issued notice after NGO Naaz Foundation urged it to issue directions that HIV positive school children should not be discriminated against and turned out of the schools.

The NGO said that HIV positive children should be treated as “disadvantaged”.
