A day after the Congress politician and ‘activist’ Nellai Kannan was booked for calling for the murder of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, the Tamil Nadu police arrested him on Tuesday night.

To evade the arrest, Kannan had on Monday got himself admitted to a hospital but was discharged following which he had gone underground. On Tuesday evening, tracking his mobile phone signal, the police located him in Perambalur district in central Tamil Nadu and immediately detained him.

A senior police officer said that Kannan would be handed over to the Tirunelveli police and then the jurisdictional authority will formally arrest him.

Nellai Kannan has fought elections on a Congress ticket in the past and is largely viewed as a Congress supporting voice.
