To hand him over the warrant, the DGP visited Justice Karnan's residence along with Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar and DIG (CID) Rajesh Kumar.
As the three top cops visited Justice Karnan, around 100 cops were posted outside his residence.
"The DGP handed over the bailable warrant to Justice Karnan at his New Town residence this morning," the Times of India quoted a senior official of the state police force.
This comes a day after Justice Karnan had passed a suo motu order, 'directing' the CJI and other six judges to pay him Rs 14 crore as compensation.
Earlier, Justice Karnan had ordered that a case under the appropriate sections of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989 be registered against the Chief Justice of India, Justice JS Khehar and six other judges.
He had also claimed that the CJI and the other judges had "no locus standi" to issue a bailable warrant against a sitting judge.
The warrant was issued by the SC on March 10 directing the DGP to ensure his presence before the Bench on March 31.
