  1. Anger and haste are completely misplaced. There are several means available to arrive at the truth of the complaint. The one considered most appropriate in the circumstances should be used. Character certificates are not a good idea. They create a sense of gratitude, an IOU someone might wish to encash in future. 2. One option would be for the CJI to call a meeting of all judges, each of whom has a copy of the affidavit, tell them what the facts are and say, I leave it to your collective wisdom to devise a procedure by which the truth can be ascertained.
