Justice Karnan told to join Calcutta HC before March 11
Controversial Madras high court Judge Justice CS Karnan, who recently ‘stayed’ the CJI’s order transferring him, has been directed to join the Calcutta high court on or before March 11.
President Pranab Mukherjee has signed the warrant of transfer and Justice Karnan has been directed to join the Calcutta high court on or before March 11, Madras high court Registry sources said, quoting a communication received by it.
Justice Karnan had on February 15, in a suo motu order stayed Chief Justice of India TS Thakur’s order transferring him, after which the Apex Court had asked the Chief Justice of the Madras high court not to assign any judicial work to him. The same day the SC had suspended Justice Karnan’s order.
