DCP (North) Jatin Narwal said the woman told police that she reached New Delhi Railway Station from her brother’s house in Noida around 11 pm on September 11.

A 30-year-old driver of a private cab services has been arrested for allegedly raping and robbing a 23-year-old woman passenger in north Delhi’s Kotwali area, police said Wednesday. Initial investigation revealed that the man, who was arrested two days after the woman lodged a complaint, had earlier been picked up on charges of molestation.

DCP (North) Jatin Narwal said the woman told police that she reached New Delhi Railway Station from her brother’s house in Noida around 11 pm on September 11.

“She said she bought a general ticket for Ludhiana. The train was scheduled to leave at 4.30 am on September 12. She was sitting inside the waiting room when the cab driver, who introduced himself as Chunnu, came and sat with her,” Narwal said.

After a while, he misguided her by saying that the train had been cancelled, police said. “When she was about to go to the ticket counter to get more clarity, he took her ticket away and told her he will drop her off at Kashmere Gate ISBT, from where she could catch a bus to Ludhiana,” a senior police officer said.

However, when the woman rejected his proposal, he gave her his mobile number and left. “After a while, she called him and asked him to drop her at ISBT. But instead of taking her there, he allegedly took her to Golden Jubilee Park, a secluded place near Red Fort, and raped her. When she tried to scream, he allegedly threatened her of gangrape with his associates. He then snatched her mobile phone and dumped her outside Old Delhi Railway Station,” the officer added.

Police said they traced the man through the phone number he had given the woman. “With the help of technical surveillance, he was arrested from his house in Shastri Park. He is married and hails from Bihar. He was previously arrested in a molestation case; we are trying to get more details ,” the officer added.

    Is there any safety in the capital of our country except for the politicians their relatives who are always protected by CRPF, VVIP Security Personnel or Z Plus Security. Everyday plenty of such cases are registered across India but the government of the day is sleeping. No action except FIR in certain cases are lodged when high profile cases get exposed in the media. Fundmental question is that where common man go for quick timely justice in our country and why not government is taking stern action to prevent such menace against culprits involved in henious crime like Rape. Nirbhaya rape case in Delhi has not been forgotten yet It is high time to wake up and ensure safety of women in the country, Otherwise people of India will not spare those put hands before their eyes and watch such incidents calmly.

      Whatever has happened to provide women with pepper or chilli powder. BJP will surely win womens' votes and that is the first weapon available against misbehaviour and rape. There was also the case of Bobbit. Train the womenfolk in its use in emergencies.
