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.
