Anything you can do…Karnan J issues non-bailable warrant against SC judges

Bar & Bench

The Justice CS Karnan saga goes on, as he continues to pass “orders” from his residence. And this time, he has issued a non-bailable warrant against the seven senior-most judges of the Supreme Court.

Even as the apex court on Monday directed a medical evaluation of the Calcutta High Court judge, Karnan J seems to be headstrong in pursuing his vendetta against the judges.

Last month, he had passed an order directing the judges to appear before him at his ‘Rosedale Residential Court’. When the judges predictably refused to show up, he ‘reposted’ the matter to May 1.

Finding that the judges were not taking his orders seriously, Karnan J has now issued a non-bailable warrant against the seven “accused”. He has directed the Registrar General of the Calcutta High Court to issue the warrant through the DGP or the Commissioner of Police, New Delhi.

Although he had earlier added Banumathi J. to the list, the order reportedly only mentions seven judges.

The “matter” has now been posted to May 8, coincidentally the date by which the Medical Board of the Government Hospital, Calcutta has to submit the medical evaluation to the Supreme Court. The order reportedly states,

“Today the accused Judges 1 to 7 are called absent, no representation issue. Non-bailable warrant against the accused, call on 08.05.2017.”

But that was not all. In an attempt to mimic the Supreme Court’s orders against him, he has directed the Chief of Delhi Police to produce the seven accused judges for examination by a psychiatric medical board attached to AIIMS, New Delhi.
