Justice Karnan to move Supreme Court in his case

The Calcutta High Court Judge Justice (Retd.) C.S. Karnan today will move to Supreme Court after he was arrested yesterday from Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore for seeking his release and cancellation or suspension of the jail sentence in the contempt of court case.

He was arrested by the Kolkata police who is facing a jail term in contempt of court case. The court on June 7 had refused to grant relief to Justice Karnan in the contempt of court case where he was sentenced to six-month imprisonment.

"I am constrained, but to hold that the present writ petition is not maintainable. The relief, if any, lies somewhere else. I, thus, see no reasonable cause to receive the present writ petition for registration under the provisions of order XV, Rule (5) of the Supreme Court rules, 2013," the Supreme Court Registrar said in the order.
