Chennai: A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in Madras High Court seeking postponement of Tamil Nadu Class 10 and 12 Board Exams 2020 till the state reports zero Covid cases.

The PIL filed by Advocate S Stalinraja said holding the exams at a time when Tamil Nadu is reporting new Coronavirus patients every day will put students at risk.
