A 23-year-old Belgian woman was allegedly molested by an Ola cab driver in south east Delhi’s CR Park area on Saturday night prompting police to arrest the accused.
According to PTI, the victim was travelling from Noida to Delhi using the app-based taxi when she was asked by the driver Raj Singh to sit in the front seat to assist him with the navigation.
The victim, identified as a language translator, told police that the driver, who hails from Alwar in Rajasthan, allegedly kissed her.
“The driver deliberately took the wrong route after Hauz Khas and when the woman told him that she will ask her friend, he took her phone and deleted all the records related to Ola,” a senior police official said
Ola has also terminated the driver from its platform.
“The said driver has been terminated from the platform with immediate effect. We will share all required information with the authorities to help resolve this for the customer. We have zero tolerance to such behaviour from drivers on the platform,” Ola said in a statement.
The woman has been staying in India since February and is supposed to return tonight
After stepping out of the cab near C R Park area, she informed the police about the incident at around 10 PM, police said. The name of the cab owner is Vikram Singh
