"While conducting the inquiry, due care shall be taken to maintain secrecy of the identity of the petitioner and her daughter," it said.
The court passed the order on a woman's plea alleging that the police had disclosed to the media the contents of the FIR lodged on August 2, 2005 by her minor daughter accusing her father of sexually abuse.
The woman alleged that due to publicity, the victim faced irremediable social embarrassment and was unable to attend school regularly.
It was contended that her daughter was constrained to move cities and had to start her education afresh in the middle of the school term, leading to great mental trauma and agony.
