A 23-year-old Belgian woman was allegedly molested by an Ola cab driver in south east Delhi’s CR Park area last night with police arresting the accused hours later.
The accused, Raj Singh who is a native of Rajasthan’s Alwar district, was arrested after an FIR was registered.
Ola has also terminated the driver from its platform.
The woman, who identified herself as a language translator, told police that she had booked the cab from Gurgaon and during the journey the cab driver 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.
He also called her over to the front seat claiming that his GPS was not working and then allegedly kissed her, police said. 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.
“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.
