KOLKATA: Arrested former Calcutta High Court judge CS Karnan has been released from the state-run SSKM hospital and sent back to Presidency jail hospital after his health condition improved.

"His health condition improved and we have decided to release him from the hospital. However, he requires medical supervision," a senior official of the SSKM hospital said.

Karnan was released from the SSKM hospital yesterday night. He was admitted there since June 22 after he had complained of chest pain and uneasiness.

"He is currently at the Presidency correctional home (jail) hospital. Doctors there are keeping an eye on him," a senior official at the correctional home said.

Karnan was sentenced to six months imprisonment on May 9 by the Supreme Court. He had remained untraceable till his arrest.

The SC's seven-judge bench had held him guilty of contempt of court for his comments against the Chief Justice of India and other judges of the higher judiciary.

Karnan had retired earlier this month.
