A 38-year-old Nausori pastor  who fled from court last week surrendered himself to police yesterday.

The accused was convicted of raping a 15-year-old girl.

A police team conducted a three-day manhunt for the man when he failed to turn up for sentencing last week.

He surrendered himself to the team at Korolevu Community Post in Sigatoka yesterday afternoon.

Ravinesh Chand has been sentenced to 14 years imprisonment with a non-parole period of 11 years.
