New Delhi: The Supreme Court has refused to accept for hearing a plea of Calcutta High Court judge Justice C S Karnan for recall of his six-month jail term for contempt of court.

The petition was held as “not maintainable” by the apex court registry.

Karnan, through his lawyers, had moved the apex court seeking recall of the May 9 order of the seven-judge bench which had held him guilty of contempt of court and sentenced him to six months imprisonment by ordering the West Bengal police to take him into custody forthwith.

Karnan has not yet been arrested.
