Arrested former Calcutta High Court judge CS Karnan was today brought here from Chennai and taken to the Presidency correctional home (jail).

A team of state CID officers brought him by an Air India flight, a senior police officer said.

Karnan, who had been evading arrest since the May 9 Supreme Court order awarding a six-month jail term, was arrested last night by a team of West Bengal CID from a private resort at Malumichampatti, about six km from Coimbatore, where he was “hiding” for the past few days.

“His medical tests were completed at the airport and he was taken straightaway to the jail”, the officer said.

Tight security arrangements were made at the airport where senior police officers, including Kolkata Police commissioner Rajeev Kumar, were present.

The former high court judge was brought to Chennai from Coimbatore by a private airline past midnight yesterday and later accommodated in the retiring room in the airport complex amid tight security.
