Supreme Court refuses to stay arrest of Justice Karnan

Justice CS Karnan

Counsel helped TOI speak to Justice Karnan's son Sugan, who confirmed his father was in Chennai.In the recall application, Justice Karnan said his January 23 letter seeking probe into allegations of corruption against judges was not contempt of court. A team consisting of senior police officers from West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh have launched a manhunt for Karnan.

But none of the AoR is willing to file it as they are scared of your court."After ascertaining from Nedumpara that he had been duly authorised by Justice Karnan to file the recall plea, the court took the application and said an appropriate bench would consider it. TOI asked Nedumpara about Justice Karnan's whereabouts amid speculation that he might have left the country".

The plea for the stay of the sentence till the review plea is decided can only be considered by the seven judge bench of Chief Justice Khehar, Justice Dipak Misra, Justice J. Chelameswar, Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Madan B. Lokur, Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Justice Kurian Joseph which passed the order.

Justice C S Karnan has been sentenced to six months jail by the Supreme Court for contempt. He was due to retire next month. This was at the Mumbai High Court, where a two-judge bench recorded how he had walked out of the courtroom after behaving in way that the court found to be "to say the least. most abusive, contemptuous, lowering the dignity of the court".

Mr Nedumpara, who undertook to face the court, had faced a contempt notice himself two months ago.

Justice Karnan earlier on May 2 directed the court's registrar to issue non-bailable warrant against these seven Supreme Court judges.

Justice Karnan yesterday sought relief from the apex court in the contempt of court matter.

The Kolkata police, which has been instructed by the apex court to execute its order, stayed put in Chennai to take him into custody before he could be forwarded to jail for serving the sentence.

Justice Karnan has been accused of circulation of disparaging letters against sitting High Court judges of the Madras High Court.
