Allahabad, Sep 14: Allahabad High Court has accepted the decision and resolution of the committee headed by Director State Raj Vigyan Sansthan, which said there was no need for any separate school subject for enlightening the students about AIDS.

The committee said information about the disease was already included in various subjects such as home science, biology, and chemistry.

The report assured that it could always be supplemented with further details in the aforesaid subjects.

The court opined that ''such education at a tender age is not going to serve the purpose and rather it may prove counter productive and may have adverse impact on the students between the ages of nine to 12 years''.

Justice S N Srivastava passed this order on a writ petition filed by Iqbal Hussain and others.

The court with the above observations disposed of the writ petition.
