Judge CS Karnan of the former Madras and Calcutta High Court was arrested by Avadi Chennai Police over allegedly abusive recordings. In videos uploaded online, three FIRs have been reported against former Judge Karnan over derogatory remarks against women and the judiciary. Karnan's counsel, Peter Ramesh Kumar, told Bar & Bench that the former judge had been taken to the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Egmore, for remand. He added that Karnan is likely to be lodged at Puzhal Prison II. Earlier this week on 7 December, in a petition lodged by the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, the Madras High Court addressed the personal presence of the Director-General of Police and the Commissioner of Police before the Court challenging the delay in pursuing punitive investigation towards CS Karnan.
