 C S Karnan Health
New Delhi: Former Calcutta high court judge C S Karnan, arrested for committing contempt of the Supreme Court, today remained admitted to a hospital with the doctors describing him as ‘not fit’ to be discharged.

“He is a bit better but not in a state to be released from the hospital. Doctors are keeping an eye on him,” a senior officer at the Presidency correctional home (jail) told media.

Karnan, 62, was admitted to state-run SSKM hospital last evening after he complained of ‘uneasiness’ and chest pain. It was learnt that the doctors at the hospital conducted a few medical tests on the former judge today too and the results are being awaited.

Karnan, who had been evading arrest since May 9 after the Supreme Court awarded him a six-month jail term, was arrested on the June 20 night by a team of West Bengal CID from a private resort at Malumichampatti, about six km from Coimbatore, where he was hiding for a few days.

He was brought from Chennai to Kolkata on Wednesday afternoon and was taken to the Presidency correctional home.
