SC orders medical test on Justice Karnan to check his sanity
The war between Justice Karnan and the Supreme Court (SC) judges seems to be taking a new twist with every hearing.

The SC had recently raised doubts over the sanity of Justice CS Karnan, a high court judge of the Calcutta High Court. The court had also ordered that a medical examination be conducted on Justice Karnan to ascertain "whether the high court judge is mentally ill". 

The SC has given the medical board time till May 8 to submit its report. To 'assist' the medical board in conducting the examination, the apex court has asked the West Bengal DGP to form a team of police officers.

Though the court has given Justice Karnan another chance to file his response to the order, it has also said in case he does not file his response, the court would presume that he has nothing to say.

However, Justice Karnan was quick to hit back and said that in case the DGP would force him for a mental checkup, he would order the DGP's suspension.

"I will issue suo moto suspension order against West Bengal DGP if he comes to check my mental health forcefully," Justice Karnan said.

He also ordered the DGP New Delhi to take the seven judges of the SC for a psychiatric medical check up at AIIMS.

"I direct DGP, New Delhi to take the seven accused and produce them to psychiatric medical board attached to AIIMS and conduct medical test," ET quoted Justice Karnan.
