According to police, the five accused stopped Justice Biswanath Somadder's vehicle at a toll plaza of Vivekananda Bridge in Howrah's Bally area on Saturday evening.
"Five toll plaza employees have been arrested for allegedly stopping the judge from passing through the gate, meant for cars exempt from paying toll," an officer from Howrah's Nischinda police station said.
"The five staffers were appointed at the toll by a private company. All of them have been remanded to five days of police custody," he said.
"Action has been taken according to law," police said.
