New Delhi: The Supreme Court Friday asked the government not to treat Sanskrit as a third language for Class 8 students of Kendriya Vidyalayas and instead treat it as an additional language retaining German as a third language.

"You test them in Sanskrit for the additional language and German remains a third language," said an apex court bench headed by Justice Anil R. Dave.

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said he would revert to the court after taking instruction from the government.

The court said this in the course of hearing a petition by 22 aggrieved parents who had challenged the government decision to substitute German with Sanskrit as a third language in the middle of the session of the academic year.
