The whereabouts of Calcutta High Court judge C.S. Karnan, sentenced to jail for six months by the Supreme Court, remained a mystery on Wednesday, even as a West Bengal police team reached in Chennai.

Some sources in Chennai said he had left the State Guest House for the famed Shiva temple in Srikalahasti town in Andhra Pradesh.

But an official at the temple, about 120 km from Chennai, told media that there was no trace of the judge.

"He did not arrive yesterday or today. We have no idea if he will reach the temple tomorrow," the official said.

Another temple official had earlier said that the judge was likely to reach the Andhra town on Wednesday evening and offer prayers on Thursday morning.

Justice Karnan checked into the Chennai Guest House on Tuesday after leaving his home in Kolkata. But he has not officially vacated the guest house room and his bill remains to be settled.   

Officials said two other advocates who came with the judge have been asked to vacate their rooms in the Chennai guest house.

The apex court has ordered the Director General of West Bengal Police to set up a team to implement its arrest order "forthwith".

Justice Karnan was found guilty of contempt for hurling corruption charges against Supreme Court judges including the Chief Justice.
