When he saw the cops he ran but police chased him down and caught him.

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.
Senior woman police officer ASP L. Chandkumary, 56, from Bedong, Kedah, was charged in a magistrate’s court here with negligence over his escape.
She denied intentionally releasing Prabaharan, who was in her custody at 1.50pm on Oct 9 at the George Town court complex here.
