HC judge Karnan gives cops the slip

The bench agreed to look into the petition.

Meanwhile, Peter also dismissed reports of a personal affidavit by Justice Karnan authorising lawyer Mathews Nedumpara to move the Supreme Court on his behalf, seeking a recall of its order convicting him.

CJI Khehar asked Nedumpara where is Justice Karnan, to which the bench was informed that he was "very much in Chennai".

The plea was mentioned before the bench, that also comprised Justices Kurian Joseph, R F Nariman, U U LALIT and Abdul Nazeer, which had just concluded the day's hearing on the issue of triple talaq.

The West Bengal police team that arrived in Chennai on Wednesday to arrest Justice CS Karnan, sentenced to six months' jail by the Supreme Court, failed to trace his location.

Although media and Chennai police were told that Justice Karnan had left the Chepauk government guest house on Wednesday morning to visit Kalahasti, only his cellphone had travelled to Kalahasti while he took a direction towards north, Kumar said.

To counter India's apex court, Justice Karnan set up his own makeshift court at his home in New Town, Kolkata, the capital city of India's eastern state of West Bengal, after it barred him handling any judicial or administrative function. The Bengal police team has been coordinating with their Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh counterparts and is on a lookout for the judge.

In addition to the program from 2 to 3 p.m., is a 12:30 p.m. lunch reception for Loudoun pastors and other faith leaders. A midmorning National Day of Prayer service planned for outdoors in Grantville was moved to the city council chambers.

But Karnan refused to undergo medical tests as directed by the Supreme Court and told the team of doctors, in a written response, that he is "absolutely normal and with a stable mind".

It marks the latest stage of a steadily escalating face-off between Justice Karnan and the Supreme Court, which began when he called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to investigate 20 "corrupt judges".

Justice Karnan, who is on warpath with the Supreme Court for the last several months, is the first sitting judge of a high court to be sentenced.

Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh submitted that Justice Karnan seems to "know what he is doing" and action needs to be taken against him in the contempt proceedings.

Karnan said he was being given "insignificant and dummy" portfolios because he was a Dalit.

This series of events eventually led to the Supreme Court transferring Karnan from the Madras High Court to the Calcutta High Court in March 2016. He went incommunicado when the full import of the apex court ruling dawned on everyone. Karnan, to ratchet up the fight, passed an order directing the examinations of all these seven judges instead.
