(1.) Leave granted.
(2.) The appellant is aggrieved by the judgment and order dated 12th
November, 2009 passed by the Delhi High Court in Contempt Case (C) No.449
of 2009. By the impugned judgment and order, the High Court held that the
respondents had not committed any violation of the order dated 12th
November, 2008 passed in W.P. (C) No.7971 of 2008.
(3.) In W.P. (C) No.7971 of 2008 the appellant had made several prayers
but during the course of hearing in the High Court, five of the prayers
were not pressed with liberty to take appropriate proceedings in accordance
with law. The sixth prayer which was pressed related to respondent No.2
(Ashok Chaturvedi). It was prayed that he should be asked to proceed on
leave pending the independent enquiry into the appellant's complaint of
sexual harassment so that this respondent could not use his power and
authority to influence any independent enquiry. As will be evident from
the prayer, the enquiry relating to the allegation of sexual harassment
made by the appellant was already pending. In the order dated 12th
November, 2008 a direction was given by the High Court to expeditiously
conclude the enquiry.;
