Chennai, December 2
The Tamil Nadu Police on Wednesday arrested retired High Court Judge Justice CS Karnan for allegedly releasing on social media offensive videos and posts with objectionable comments and threats of sexual violence against judiciary officials and their family members.
Several lawyers had written against Justice Karnan to the Chief Justice of India after he allegedly released the videos.
Justice Karnan was sentenced to six-month jail for contempt of court by the Supreme Court when he was a Calcutta HC Judge in 2017. He was arrested by the Kolkata Police following which he served his jail term. — IANS
