FORMER CALCUTTA HIGH COURT JUDGE JUSTICE KARNAN ARRESTED FROM COIMBATORE :

Former Calcutta high court judge CS Karnan was on 20th. June arrested from Coimbatore and was taken to Chennai. Sixty-two-year-old Justice Karnan had been evading arrest since May 9 after being sentenced to six months imprisonment for contempt of court by the Supreme Court.  He has the dubious distinction of being the first sitting high court judge to be awarded a jail term by the apex court.  Karnan is facing six months imprisonment for contempt of the Supreme Court, retired on June 12, probably escaping the odium of a sitting judge being arrested while in office.  Justice Karnan, who was transferred to Kolkata after he had kicked up a row by raking up issues against other judges of the Madras high court, including the Chief Justice, has been untraceable ever since the apex court sentenced him for contempt on May 9.  A seven-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar held Karnan guilty of contempt and ordered six months imprisonment for him.  The Rediff.com : 20th.
