Panaji, July 16 (IANS) A 30-year-old rape accused who escaped from judicial custody last month has been arrested in Bengaluru, Goa Police said on Tuesday.
Ramachandra Yellappa is accused of allegedly raping a 48-year-old British tourist near South Goa's Canacona railway station and had fled from custody while he was being shifted to a court for trial on June 28.
"A team of officials from Margao town police station has arrested the accused Ramachandra Yellappa in Bengaluru based on a tip-off," a Goa Police spokesperson told reporters on Tuesday.
Yellappa, who hails from Tamil Nadu, was being escorted to a trial court for a hearing last month, when he escaped from the toilet of the court complex, forcing the police to launch a manhunt to trace him.
