Judge of the Calcutta High Court C.S. Karnan on Friday threatened to prosecute seven senior Judges of the Supreme Court who had issued a contempt notice against him.

At a press conference in Kolkata, he said he was targeted by the Supreme Court for “being someone from a Scheduled Caste [SC] community.”

“The way they [Supreme Court] has issued notices against me and summoned me it is unprecedented and the [Supreme] Court has no right to do act the way it did. This is because I am from the SC community,” he said.

The 62-year-old Judge wrote a letter earlier to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and others alleging corruption among judges and in the judiciary. He has been pursuing his allegation for close to a decade.
