A woman journalist has accused an Uber cab driver of molesting her while she was on her way from Delhi to Noida, following which the driver has been arrested. As per the complaint, the woman journalist took the Uber cab service from Delhi to Noida last night, DSP Vijay Dhul said.
The woman suspected that the driver Ravinder Singh was taking a wrong route near Noida Sector 15 metro station, and asked him to stop the vehicle. She then alighted from the cab and started walking, while the driver insisted on taking her to her destination, police said.
The woman, a resident of Gurgaon, alleged that the driver chased her and behaved inappropriately, they said. The journalist then called the police control room and registered a complaint. “The accused driver Ravinder Singh was arrested today and produced before a court that has sent him to judicial custody,” Dhul said.
