Justice C.S. Karnan has told the Supreme Court that he wants to challenge his conviction for contempt of court and sought the recall of the apex court’s May 9, 2017 order “as no charge was framed”.

 

Justice Karnan’s lawyer mentioned the plea before the Bench hearing petitions against triple talaq.

Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar told the lawyer that the Bench would consider the plea since it is mentioned.

 

Querying about the whereabouts of Justice Karnan, the Chief Justice asked lawyer Mathews J. Nedumpara to show papers authorising him to represent the judge.

The lawyer told the Bench that Justice Karnan was in Chennai on May 10, 2017 and showed his vakalatnama to Chief Justice Khehar.

Mr. Nedumpara also told the Bench that 12 advocates on record have refused to represent Justice Karnan.
