O R D E R
We have perused the preliminary report of the learned Amicus Curiae. At the outset, we make it clear that the report that the learned Amicus Curiae is required to submit to the Court is a compilation of the relevant facts in seriatum indicating, inter alia, the claims and counter-claims of the various parties before the Court and the orders passed with regard to the same. The learned Amicus Curiae is not required to give any hearing to any of the contesting parties or to take any material or application(s)/document(s) from any of such parties. The report to be submitted by the learned Amicus Curiae will be solely on the basis of the materials already on record. The above clarification has become necessary in view of certain submissions made before us.
Having considered the preliminary report of the learned Amicus Curiae, we appoint Ms. Anitha Shenoy, Advocate-on-Record as the co-Amicus Curiae who will inspect the records along with a team of junior advocates of her choice. Thereafter, in consultation with Shri Raju Ramachandran, learned Amicus Curiae, the requisite report will be submitted within a period of four weeks from today.
It is stated at the Bar that Writ petition (Civil) Nos.1064/2014, 2/2015, 3/2015 and 6/2015 are similar to the present matters and may be heard along with the present matters. It is ordered accordingly.
List the matters on 10th March, 2015.
