New Delhi, Sep 3 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Monday reserved its order on a student's plea seeking the quashing of Delhi University guidelines for a mandatory fitness test to seek admission under the sports quota, even for indoor games like chess.

Petitioner Chetna Karnani, a 17-year-old chess player who secured 72.5 percent in her Class 12 exams, had sought admission under the sports quota. In June, she failed in the fitness test because of her obese stature.
