NEW DELHI: Hours after bailable warrants were served by Calcutta Police to Justice C S Karnan, in pursuance of the Supreme Court order in a suo motu contempt case, he in another letter to Chief Justice of India stated that he had rejected the same.
In a two page letter address to all seven judges who had issued bailable warrant against Justice Karnan for not appearing before the special bench, he said, “This kind of demeaning acts from your lordships and further perpetrating the atrocities act is absolutely out of law to the utter embarrassment of a dalit judge.”
He urged the apex court Judges to abstain from further harassments in order to uphold the dignity and decorum of our courts.
Giving reasons for rejecting the warrants against him, Justice Karnan said, “Since the West Bengal judicial jurisdiction is a part of his control and command a bailable warrant became improper and untenable.
“In any circumstances, you should not show any prejudice at the time of holding any cases, but should follow the procedure of law. It is quite evidence that the Judges deliberately and wantonly failed due to lack of legal knowledge, this kind of worst type of acrimonious behavior will only endanger ultimately the General Public. Hence, I request you to close the contempt proceedings and restore my normal court assignments in order to maintain law and justice across the nation and to keep the dignity and decorum of the courts intact.”
Yesterday, in another letter he had demanded an compensation of Rs 14 crore for disturbing his mind and normal life, failing which he would restrain the judicial and administrative work of these judges.  
Earlier this month, the court had issued bailable warrant against Judge C S Karnan to ensure he appears before it on March 31.
If Justice Karnan fails to appear on March 31, then the court might issue a non-bailable warrant against him.
The contempt proceedings have been initiated against Justice Karnan for writing letters to various judges including the Prime Minister, accusing several judges of corruption.
