A physically-disabled teenager, who writes with his legs due to his hands being deformed, has been admitted to a government school in Madhya Pradesh's Barwani district after being denied admission by several other institutions due to his disability.

Parsingh Parihar (14), a tribal student from Ambapani village, had complained about his plight to the administration of Barwani district, over 150 kilometres from here, on August 7 during a public hearing.

"I belong to a poor family and wish to study after the eighth standard. But no private or government educational institution is giving me admission. Teachers are stating that since I write with my legs, they cant admit me to school," Parihar said in his application.
