Kolkata High Court judge, Justice C S Karnan who was awarded 6 months jail term in a case of contempt of court by Supreme Court has now sought relief in the matter.

He filed a petition in the Supreme Court before a five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar, on which CJI Kehar said that the court will look into the matter.
