Indian judge in contempt case plays hide and seek with police

Justice CS Karnan

A senior Indian judge who ordered the arrest of the Chief Justice of India and seven Supreme Court judges has been jailed for contempt.

The SC judges said this amounted to degrading the judiciary, and that Karnan should be punished for the offense.

A petition about the recall was mentioned before a five- judge bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar, which agreed to look into it.

However, when CJI asked about the whereabouts of Justice Karnan, lawyer Nedumpara said that 12 advocates on record have refused to represent Justice Karnan, who is in Chennai. Two days later, it is being reported that Kolkata Police is unable to trace Justice Karnan.

A Bengal police team today reached Chennai and then went to Srikalahasti in Andhra Pradesh's Chittoor in search of Calcutta High Court judge C.S. Karnan.

In his appeal, Justice Karnan has challenged the Constitutional validity of contempt of court act and said that he has been convicted without any charges being framed.

The team of police officers from Bengal checked into the Tamil Nadu Police Officers Mess at Egmore.

Listing out Justice Karnan's demands, Peter notes, "He wants interim bail until final orders are passed".

The 61-year-old judge was accused of contempt after he named 20 "corrupt judges" of the country earlier this year.

However, Counsel for Karnan Mathews J Nedumpara told the apex court that the judge is in Chennai.

Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh submitted that Justice Karnan seems to "know what he is doing" and action needs to be taken against him in the contempt proceedings.

At a hearing on March 31, the Chief Justice had raised questions about the judge Karnan's mental health. The apex court has been resistant to the idea of a transparent National Judicial Appointments Committee, even though at least one of its judges is against the collegium system.

Karnan alleged the judges harbor a caste bias against him and that the apex court order amounts to an offence under the law to punish atrocities against Dalits and tribals. He stated that the Supreme Court's latest order was an "insult" to a Dalit judge.
