She was referred to Additional Director of Education which in turn referred her to DDE East with remark on the copy of court order itself ‘met me during (PH) Please do the needful’. Ms. Sunita Chauhan on 22.09.2014 itself approached DDE East who did not take it seriously and asked Ms. Sunita Chauhan to wait till file is received by him. Ms. Sunita Chauuhan submitted a written representation dated 22.09.2014 in the office DDE East. A copy of said representations enclosed hereto also.
Take notice that you are the person responsible for the implementation of the directions given by the Hon’ble High Court in the above stated case. A period of more than two weeks has since elapsed but till date the directions given by the Hon’ble High Court have not been implemented by you deliberately and intentionally that amounts to contempt of Hon’ble Delhi High Court which attracts penal action against you.
