Why the SC ordered media gag in the Justice Karnan case is wrong
There has been a raging debate over the Justice C S Karnan issue. While the Supreme Court sentenced him to undergo imprisonment for 6 months in a contempt case, the order also gagged the media from writing anything that Justice Karnan spoke about.
The question is could the media have been gagged from writing anything that Justice Karnan spoke about? After all the media was not part of the contempt proceedings. OneIndia spoke with Justice Santhosh Hegde, former judge of the Supreme Court about his views on the Justice Karnan case.
