Kolkata: Around 100 cops led by the chief of the West Bengal Police arrived at Calcutta High Court judge Justice CS Karnan’s home in Kolkata on Friday to serve a warrant ordered by Supreme Court in a contempt case.
Notably, last week, the top court asked the Bengal police chief to “personally” serve the warrant to Justice Karnan after he skipped hearing in a contempt case.
Chief Justice of India JS Khehar and six more judges had summoned Justice Karnan to court for contempt in February after his controversial allegations about corruption in the judiciary.
On Wednesday, Justice Karnan directed the CBI to conduct a thorough probe into his corruption charges against the 20 judges and said material to substantiate his allegations was available with Madras HC.
He also ordered the seven judges on the bench headed by the CJI to pay him a compensation of Rs 14 crore for ruining his reputation.
