                               O R D E R

Crl.M.P. for protecting the identity of the  petitioner  is allowed.

On going through various prayers made, particularly, in the lght of the assertion made with reference to the prayer (d)  of  the writ petition, that "as on date there is no mechanism to enquire into the complaints of sexual harassment against  all  judicial  officers, sitting or retired judges, whether while holding office or  not", we   are inclined to consider these aspects.  Accordingly, we issue notice to the respondent Nos.1 to 3, returnable on 14th February, 2014.
       
Mr. Mohan  Parasaran,  learned  Solicitor  General,  accepts
notice on behalf of the respondent No.3.
We also issue notice to learned Attorney General for India. Criminal miscellaneous petition for intervention is taken on board and is allowed.
In addition to the same, in view of the  importance  of  the
issues raised and  to  formulate  a  permanent  mechanism,  we  seek assistance of Mr. Fali S. Nariman and Mr. P.P. Rao,  senior  members of the Bar, to act as Amicus Curiae.  Office is directed  to  supply copy of the petition and all connected papers to the learned  Amicus Curiae and the Attorney General.
                
It is made clear that at this moment, we are not  expressing
any opinion on the  averments/allegations  made  by  the  petitioner against the respondent No.2.
       
Dasti, in addition, is permitted.

List the matter on 14th February, 2014.
