A Seven Judge Constitution Bench of Supreme Court of India on Monday ordered the medical examination of Justice Karnan, who is facing contempt proceedings. The Bench has found that he is not in a position to defend him now.

Reacting to this Justice Karnan has reportedly said;

“Am I mentally unstable? Who is the Supreme Court to judge that I have a mental illness? The seven judges looking at my case are corrupt,” he said at a press conference hours after the SC order.

“If the DGP acts against me without my consent, I will pass an order against him. He should stay within limits... I won't submit to any treatment,” News 18 reported him as saying.

Social Media Reactions

Senior Advocate Indira Jaising has tweeted that Mental Health Care Act 2017 requires informed consent to testing and treatment and Justice Karnan cannot be compulsorily tested by order of SC.
