New Delhi :  

The Supreme Court on Monday rejected Kolkata High Court judge, Justice C S Karnan’s request that his arrest order be recalled.

The SC slammed Justice Karnan for repeatedly filing plea seeking quashing of the Apex court order.

Karnan's lawyer mentioned the matter for urgent hearing. Supreme Court said "you are wasting court's time, will hear plea when it comes up."

On May 11, Justice Karnan who was awarded 6 months jail term in a case of contempt of court by Supreme Court sought relief in the matter.

Justice Karnan moved the apex court seeking a recall of an order holding him guilty of contempt of court.

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.

Justice Karnan had written letters to the Prime Minister in which he alleged some sitting Judges of corruption and said no inquiries were made into those and instead he was targeted by his colleagues due to his caste.
