Justice Karnan’s lawyers approach president for suspension of SC order

The lawyers representing Calcutta High Court judge C S Karnan have claimed that a representation has been made to the president seeking suspension of the Supreme Court order sentencing him to six months imprisonment for contempt of court.

The lawyers said, a representation under Article 72 of the Constitution was sent through e-mail on behalf of Justice Karnan seeking suspension of his sentence imposed by a seven-judge bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar.

Article 72 states that the president shall have the power to grant pardons, reprieves, respites or remissions of punishment or to suspend, remit or commute the sentence of any person convicted of any offence.

Justice Karnan has also moved a petition in the apex court seeking recall of the May 9 order, but has been denied urgent hearing by the Chief Justice of India.
