UPON hearing counsel the Court made the following
O R D E R
We had issued a Rule in W.P.(C)No.177 of 2013 since the
issue involved therein is of great consequence, as far as the
citizens, and, in particular, the children between the age groups
of 14 to 18 are concerned. The Union of India has already
entered appearance in the matter and had earlier been directed to
file its response, which has not yet been filed. However, on
account of the serious nature of the contents of the writ
petition, four weeks' time is granted to the Union of India and
the other respondents to file their respective responses to the
Rule; rejoinder, thereto, if any, may be filed within two weeks
Since this is not an adversarial litigation as such, it is
hoped that all the parties, including the Union of India, will
treat the matter with all seriousness and take positive steps to
try and contain the menace.
List the matter after six weeks.
Let the application for impleadment, being I.A.No.1 of 2013,
be also taken up on the next date.
