Calcutta HC Judge Justice C S Karnan ordered non-bailable warrants against 7 judges of the Supreme Court

In the ongoing battle there seems to be no peace in sight between Justice Karnan and the seven judges of the Supreme Court, including the CJI.

In the latest development Calcutta High Court judge Justice CS Karnan has ‘issued’ a non-bailable warrant against seven judges of the Supreme Court, including the CJI. He has also directed the registrar-general of the Calcutta High Court to issue NBW through the DGP or Commissioner of Police, New Delhi.

Justice Karnan issued this order apparently invoking his powers under Article 226 of the Constitution and Section 482 of CrPC and also “suo motu judicial order in the interest of the nation to protect the general public from corruption and unrest”.

Justice Karnan terms the SC judges “accused judges” and interestingly the name of Justice Banumathi is not seen featured, though it was included in his last ‘order’.

Earlier, a seven-judge Constitution Bench of Supreme Courtheaded by the Chief Justice of India on Monday had ordered the medicalexamination of Justice Karnan, who is facing contempt proceedings.

Reacting to the order, a belligerent Justice Karnan had yesterday said in Kolkata that he will not appear before such a medical board as directed by the Supreme Court. 

The bench had also seriously taken note of the two recent“judicial orders” passed by Justice Karnan (when he was restrained from issuingjudicial or administrative orders) summoning the judges of seven-judge benchand directing the Air Control Authority not to allow the judges totravel abroad. The bench, in its order, had said: In order to ensure nocourt, tribunal or authority takes cognizance of orders passed by JusticeKarnan, we restrain all courts’ tribunal authorities from acting on his orders.

The SC bench had directed the medical board to submit its report on May 8, and Justice Karnan has posted his ‘suo motu case’ on the same day.
