New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to consider hearing a plea filed by Calcutta high court justice C.S. Karnan seeking to review an apex court ruling holding him in contempt.

“The contempt order must be reviewed as no charge was framed against him," advocate Mathew Nedumpara, appearing on behalf of Karnan, told the court.

On 9 May, a seven-judge bench of the SC headed by chief justice J.S. Khehar sentenced Karnan to six months of imprisonment, holding him guilty of contempt of court.

The court held him in contempt for declining to undergo medical tests to determine the state of his mental health.

The court had taken suo motu (on its own motion) cognizance of alleged misconduct by Karnan in accusing members of the judiciary of nepotism, casteism and corruption when he served as a judge in the Madras high court.
