Calcutta High Court judge CS Karnan yesterday moved the Supreme Court seeking recall of an order holding him guilty of contempt of court and sentencing him to a six-month jail term.
A five-judge bench presided over by Chief Justice J S Khehar refused to grant any reprieve to the elusive judge as his counsel tried to bring out his predicament, saying the Registry was not listing the petition filed by Karnan.
The plea on behalf of the judge was mentioned before the bench, which also comprised Justices Kurian Joseph, R F Nariman, U U Lalit and Abdul Nazeer, which had just concluded the day's hearing on the issue of triple talaq.
"We are not the registry". Go and give it (original copy of petition) to the registry. You can not keep on handing papers to us. Finally, Chief Justice Khehar told Mr. Nedumpara that "you have mentioned it. we will see", before rising for the day.
"None of the AoRs are willing to appear as they are scared of this court", said Nedumpara.
Justice Karnan was found guilty of contempt for hurling corruption charges against Supreme Court judges including the Chief Justice. He said, at the most, judges could have initiated criminal or civil defamation against him, which they did not.
