Cab driver arrested for harassing woman judge


New Delhi, Jun 2: A driver, working for ola cab service, has been arrested for allegedly harassing and misbehaving with a woman judge in a city court who had hired his car to go shopping in north Delhi, police said today.

The driver, identified as Sandeep, was arrested from Gurgaon and booked on charges of outraging the modesty of the woman among others on the basis of a complaint by the additional sessions judge in Tis Hazari court.

The complainant told the police that she had on May 28 hired the Ola cab to go shopping in a market in north Delhi.

She asked the driver to wait while she went to a shop. As the wait exceeded two minutes, the driver allegedly started verbally abusing her. He even went on to throw her bag on the road, said a senior police officer.

The complaint was lodged yesterday, following which a case under IPC sections 354 A (making sexually colored remarks), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult modesty of a woman) and 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees) was registered at Roop Nagar Police Station and the driver was arrested, he said.
