Calcutta HC Justice Karnan : The 7 constitutional SC Judges Should Resign

Calcutta HC Justice Karnan in a letter addressed to the Medical Board of the Calcutta Parlov Hospital,has demanded that the Judges constituting the seven Judge Constitution Bench do the “right thing by resigning their posts”, as he felt that it is “too obvious” that they’re working only for personal gain.

Furthermore in the letter stated that the Supreme Court order directing his medical examination amounted to “insult and harassment to a Dalit Judge”, and revealed that the seven Judges were “misusing” their judicial powers.

The letter subsequently stated, “Furthermore, my opinion on all 7 erring Judges due to their personal desire for gain are operating their Judicial power outside of law, out of cause of action and jurisdiction. The 7 Judges judicial services are not suitable for the Indian Nation… In the instant case the above 7 Judges are encouraging and supporting corruption, hence I am opposing the same for the sanctity of the Court and for the National Welfare.”

Calcutta HC Judge Karnanhad, earlier on last week, refused to be examined by a four-memberteam of psychiatrists from the Calcutta Pavlov Hospital for Mental Patients. He had told the team of doctors that he is normal and has a stable mind, and had offered them tea instead.

On Monday, the orderfor Justice Karnan’s medical check-up was passed by a seven JudgeConstitution Bench. The bench was particularly miffed over two recent “judicial orders” passed by Justice Karnan (when he was restrained from issuing judicial or administrative orders), summoning the Judges of seven Judge Bench, and directing the Air Control Authority to not allow the seven SC Judges to travel abroad. The Bench had then found that he was not in a position to defend himself now, and had directed the DGP, West Bengal to constitute a team of police personnel to get the examination conducted. The Board is supposed to submit a report by May 8.
