Bengaluru , India:  A rape accused jumped across a 40-foot boundary wall to escape from a prison in Karnataka last week, but was captured again a day later.

The incident was captured on CCTV at Davanagere sub-jail on Friday.

In the footage, Vasant - a 23-year-old inmate who faces rape charges - was seen jumping across the wall and running away.

He was arrested again a day later from Haveri.

In March, three prisoners had escaped from the Kurukshetra district jail in Haryana from an area where maintenance work was underway.
