A 36-year-old driver of an Uber cab has been arrested for allegedly molesting a woman passenger on Tuesday evening.

Police said the victim is a utility services manager at the Palam airport. She had booked the cab to go to Mahavir Enclave from the airport.

The incident exposes yet again how unsafe the public transport remains for women in Delhi, four years after a physiotherapy student was gang-raped on a bus in 2012.

The accused, Rakesh, allegedly took the wrong route and insisted on picking up more passengers on the way. When the 32-year-old woman resisted and told him that she had booked a personal cab and not a sharing one, Rakesh rebuked her. More info
