Justice Karnan sends cops on wild goose chase

The bench agreed to look into the petition. The bench said Justice Karnan has to be viewed as an "ordinary citizen" of the country and can not be treated like a sitting judge in this case.

The plea on behalf of the judge was mentioned before the bench which had just concluded the day's hearing on the issue of triple talaq. The cops on Wednesday spoke to Manik Raj, another lawyer of Justice Karnan, who was staying at the same guest house.

A police team from Kolkata arrived in Chennai to arrest Karnan but his location remained a mystery. However, Justice Karnan had put up a belligerent face in front of the court when he said would not appear before it again even if he was arrested and put behind bars.

The team of police officers from Bengal checked into the Tamil Nadu Police Officers Mess at Egmore. "However, he could not be traced despite police teams looking for him at several possible places", an official said.

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

Two days after he was held guilty for the contempt of court by the Supreme Court, Calcutta High Court judge Justice CS Karnan on Thursday approached the apex court to overturn its order.

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.

In a first, Karnan became the first sitting judge to be given a jail term. He is due to retire next month.

He has also said in his application that the SC should recall its order which sentenced him to six months in jail.

Karnan said: "This kind of harassment order against my sanity is an additional insult to an innocent Dalit judge who is of sound health and mind", he said.

Justice Karnan earlier on Monday sentenced the Chief Justice of India and six other apex court judges to five-year rigorous imprisonment after holding them guilty under the SC/ST Atrocities Act-1989 and amended Act of 2015.

The apex court had on March 10 issued a bailable warrant against Justice Karnan to ensure his presence before it in the contempt case.

The doctors had gone there to conduct a medical examination of him on the orders of the Supreme Court on May 1.

Peter, however, did reveal Justice Karnan's next steps.

To add a further twist to this tale, Karnan is now known to have left Kolkata the morning of the Supreme Court's decision to send him to jail. The controversial judge was transferred from the Madras HC for his repeated allegations and tiffs with its chief justice and fellow judges.
