AG allows booking contempt of court case against K Sudhakaran for remark against judge
Kochi: The Advocate General (AG) has granted permission to book contempt of court charge against Congress MP K Sudhakaran for his remarks against the high court in connection with Shuhaib murder case.
The order was pronounced on the petition filed by high court lawyer Janardana Shenoy. Sudhakaran made the controversial remark against the verdict of the division bench quashing the order to entrust the Shuhaib murder case to CBI.
In a public event held in Kannur, Sudhakaran said that the judge who pronounced the verdict is out of his mind and the public would lose their trust due to such demeaning verdict. Following this, action was recommended against him.
Meanwhile, Sudhakaran reacted that he did not mention anything for a contempt of court charge against him. “I believe that the court cannot punish me. There was nothing wrong in my statement and there is no need for any correction,” he added.
The division bench, including the chief justice, quashed the single bench verdict leaving the Shuhaib murder case to CBI, in August 2019.
