The Supreme Court on Monday ordered medical examination of Justice C S Karnan by a team of doctors. 

The apex court directs West Bengal DGP to set up a team of police officials to assist the medical board in examining Justice Karnan. The medical board to be set up by government hospital Kolkata, will have to submit its report to the supreme court on or before May 8.

The supreme court has also asked Justice Karnan to file his response, if he desires so. If justice Karnan decides not to file his response, the apex court would presume that he has nothing to say.

The SC directed all courts, tribunals and commissions across the country not to consider any order passed by Justice Karnan after February 8 when it had restrained him from taking up judicial work.
