Bangalore, Sept 6 : Serial rapist and killer Psycho Shankar, who had escaped from the Bangalore Central Jail, was arrested on Friday, said police.


The Bangalore City Police said Jaishankar, known as Psycho Shankar, was arrested at the Kudlu Gate on Bangalore-Hosur Highway.

"We had launched a major operation on Friday and arrested Jaishankar," Commissioner of Police Bangalore, Raghavendra Auradkar, told media.

According to jail authorities, 38-year-old truck driver Jaishankar, who was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison in connection with a rape and murder case, escaped from the jail by scaling a 30 feet high wall early Sunday.

According to reports, he scaled the high wall of the prison with the help of a bamboo pole and a bed-sheet and fled in a police uniform.

Jaishankar, a resident of Tamil Nadu's Salem city, is an accused in over 24 rape cases committed in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.
