The Delhi High Court today asked the Centre to place on record all the orders passed by the Supreme Court in the contempt case against the jailed ex- Calcutta HC judge C S Karnan who has challenged the constitutionality of the Contempt of Courts Act.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar, however, refused to issue notice saying, “We have to be satisfied first that there is a case for issuance of notice.”

It asked the central government’s lawyer Gaurang Kanth to also place on record the apex court rules that said only an advocate-on-record could file petitions in the Supreme Court and listed the matter for hearing on August 8.

While advocate Mathews J Nedumpara was arguing for the retired judge, the bench disagreed with his submissions, saying that he was “misquoting” the apex court verdict.

The court’s remarks came when he said that there was a apex court judgement which permitted a Supreme Court order to be challenged before a high court.
