Former Calcutta High Court judge C S Karnan was on Tuesday arrested by West Bengal police from the guest house of a private college in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore district. This comes a week after he retired from service. He was sentenced by the Supreme Court to six months jail term for contempt of court and had not been seen in public since then. He also became the first high court judge to have retired as a fugitive.

According to a top police official, Karnan had resisted the arrest and argued with the police before he was eventually taken into custody. “We have arrested former high court judge Karnan from south India,” a senior officer of the CID said. According to PTI, Three police teams from Kolkata were camping in Coimbatore for the past three days and traced him on the basis of his mobile phone calls. He will later be taken to Kolkata, the police said.

Earlier this month, the apex court had declined the 62-year-old’s plea seeking a stay on his conviction in a contempt of court case. The matter was mentioned before a vacation bench of justices Ashok Bhushan and Deepak Gupta. The bench had refused to interfere with the order or conviction.
