When he saw the cops he ran but police chased him down and caught him.
He escaped their custody as he was taken to Penang prison after attending court in Cameron Highlands.
Prabaharan was taken to the George Town Sessions Court to face more than 10 cases of cheating women of cash and gold in Penang, Perak, Johor and Kedah.
The computer technician allegedly duped women by claiming to be a Datuk Seri and a doctor.
