Chennai: former HC judge Karnan arrested

Dec 02, 2020 16:40 IST

A month after he was booked for his alleged remarks against several former and sitting judges of the high court and the Supreme Court, former High Court judge C S Karnan on Wednesday was arrested in Chennai. In October, the Chennai police cyber cell had registered a case against him following a complaint by a lawyer of the Madras High Court. A senior officer said the complaint was followed by a letter written by senior lawyers of Madras High Court to Chief Justice of India Sharad A Bobde against Karnan over a video in which he is purportedly heard making objectionable comments against women, threatening judicial officers and spouses of judges with sexual violence.
