They were near the National Museum on Janpath Road when the woman noticed that the driver was masturbating. “I immediately pressed the panic button and called the police,” she said.
An Uber driver has been arrested for allegedly masturbating while driving a woman passenger in the heart of Delhi. The woman, who works with a private company, had booked a cab to the home on Sunday. But her journey soon turned into a nightmare when the driver allegedly started masturbating.
“We were near the National Museum on Janpath Road when I noticed that the driver was masturbating. I immediately pressed the panic button and called the police,” the woman said in her complaint.
The driver was arrested and investigations revealed that his licence was also fake, police said. A case has been filed.
Similar cases have also been reported from other metro cities, including Mumbai and Bengaluru, which is considered safe for women. Actor Sumeet Raghavan took to social media to report that the driver of a luxury sedan masturbated in front of his wife, Marathi actress Chinmayee Surve-Raghavan, in February.
A few days ago, a Delhi man, who claims to have a “habit” of “flashing at women” after getting drunk, masturbated in front on two women in southwest Delhi’s Vasant Kunj. A serial offender, the police say, the man recently came out of jail after serving 14 months for a similar crime.
In February, a Delhi University student had filmed the horror that unfolded on a state-run bus. In the video, a middle-aged man, sitting next to her, was seen fondling himself under the safety of his backpack while also ensuring that the girl gets a full view of the obscenity. She alleged that he even tried to touch her.
