Coimbatore | The former Vice-chancellor of Anna University R Radhakrishnan was today arrested after a non-bailable warrant was issued by a court for failing to appear before it in connection with a case registered by the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption against him.

Radhakrishan was arrested from his house here and produced before the Vigilance Court judge K R Madurasekaran, who remanded him to judicial custody till August 31.
