A student of Delhi University had a horrible experience while riding a cab. She is a first-year student who took an Uber Cab and was traveling alone with a driver whom she has alleged of harassment. She has reported that the driver was continuously staring at her and masturbating in front of her.
The driver has been identified as 30-year-old Manoj who is from Hisar but had moved to Gurugram a few years back. After the complaint was filed, he was arrested but later got released on bail.
An official from Uber has termed this incident as disturbing. Uber has taken away the app’s access from that driver and is providing full assistance in the investigation against him.
As per the complaint, the woman had booked a cab from her home in Sector 51 to HUDA City Centre Metro Station and from the beginning only, the driver was staring at her from the rear-view mirror. After some distance, he started masturbating.
Because of the fear and safety risk, she kept quiet during the whole ride but as soon as she reached the metro station, she jumped off the cab and ran inside. She was really disturbed that she suddenly took an auto, went back home and shared the incident with her family. They approached the Police and filed a case against the driver under IPC Section 354A (Sexual Harassment).
