SC asks Justice Karnan to file reply within 4 weeks on contempt charges

The Supreme Court asked Calcutta High Court Justice C.S. Karnan, who has levelled allegations of corruption and caste discrimination against senior judges of the Madras High Court and the apex court, to file his reply within four weeks on Friday. Justice Karnan, in his reply, told the court that his statement should be recorded so that he does not have to appear during the next hearing. He said that he would pass on order against the seven judges of the bench to restrain their administrative power.
