Respond on contempt notice: Supreme Court to Karnan

New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India today sought the response on the contempt notice issued to Justice C.S. Karnan in a suo motu hearing of the matter.

A seven-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar gave Justice Karnan four weeks time to respond to the notice issued to him in January.

At the outset of the hearing, Khehar asked Karnan if he wanted to reiterate the allegations he had made against 20 judges or think about it or offer an unconditional apology.

“We are asking you again and again. Do you say that you stand by whatever you have written or want to think about it, we will give you the time,” the bench told Karnan as he appeared before the court, after non-bailable warrants were issued against him in the last hearing.
