Justice Karnan

Calcutta High Court Judge Justice Chinnaswamy Swaminathan Karnan, 62, was found guilty in a contempt of court case and was sentenced to six months imprisonment by the Supreme Court. He is the first sitting judge of a higher court in the history of Indian judiciary to be sent to jail. In January 2017, Karnan had accused 20 sitting and retired SC and HC judges of being corrupt. The controversial judge approached the apex court to recall its order convicting him of contempt. The controversial judge was appointed as Madras High Court judge in 2009, but was later transferred due to his repeated allegations and tiffs with fellow judges. He is due to retire in June 2017.
