SC refuses to accord urgent hearing on plea of Justice C S Karnan

The Supreme Court today refused to accord urgent hearing on a plea of former Calcutta High Court judge, Justice C S Karnan, seeking bail and recall of the order convicting him for contempt.

Karnan had requested urgent listing of his petition seeking bail and setting aside of his conviction.

A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud declined, the plea saying they will not accept an oral request against the judgment. Advocate Mathews J Nedumpara, representing Justice Karnan, said that he has been serving the jail term and his petition needs to be heard on an urgent basis.
