New Delhi: Former Calcutta High Court judge CS Karnan on Tuesday made a representation before the newly sworn-in President, Ram Nath Kovind, seeking remission of the six-month jail term awarded to him by the Supreme Court.
The controversial former judge made the representation through his counsel Mathews J Nedumpara.
CS Karnan evaded arrest after the six-month jail term was imposed on him on May 9 by a seven-judge bench of the Supreme Court.
He was arrested from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu on June 20 and is presently lodged in the Presidency Correctional Home in Kolkata.
He became the first sitting high court judge in the history of the Indian judiciary to be awarded a jail term by the Supreme Court.
