Noida: A woman journalist has accused an Uber cab driver of molesting her while she was on her way from Delhi to Noida on Wednesday night. The cab driver has been arrested.
According to the complaint, the woman journalist suspected that the cab driver, Ravinder Singh, was taking a wrong route near Noida Sector 15 metro station, and asked him to stop the vehicle, said Deputy Superintendent of Police Vijay Dhul. She then got down from the cab and started walking, while the driver insisted on taking her to her destination, Dhul added.
