Kolkata: Calcutta High Court Justice C S Karnan today refused to avail any type of medical treatment saying that he has a stable mind and is quite normal. He also said that the Supreme Court order of a medical treatment is offensive.




After refusing to undergo a medical checkup by a four-member medical team from a government hospital, Justice Karnan gave in writing to the doctors, “I declined to avail medical treatment since I am quite normal and have a stable mind.




“Further my strong view about the Supreme Court order (is that) it amounts to insult and harassment towards the judge (myself),” he said.




Justice Karnan told the doctors that for holding such a medical examination, guardian’s consent is required. “As my family members are not here, there is no such consent. So any medical test cannot be held”, he said.
