    Delhi shamed again: Woman executive raped by Uber cab driver, accused


    HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times New Delhi, December 06, 2014

    The woman, who works for a finance company in Gurgaon, told police she boarded the Uber cab at 9.30pm from south Delhi’s Vasant Vihar, where she had gone for a party with friends.

    She was raped at an isolated place between Sarai Rohilla and Inderlok, police said, adding the cabbie threatened to kill and sexually assault her with a rod if she resisted him. He dropped her home after the attack.

    The cabbie even gave her a missed call from his mobile phone, police added.

    Madhur Verma, DCP (north), said a medical exam had confirmed rape and an FIR had been lodged.

    According to the complaint, the woman had gone to a restaurant for dinner with some friends after her shift ended at 7pm. One of her friends dropped her till Vasant Vihar from where she hired the cab.

    On the way, the woman dozed off on the back seat only to wake up and find that the car had stopped at a secluded spot.

    The car doors were locked. When she tried to raise an alarm, the driver thrashed and assaulted her, police said.

    Police sources said the woman had identified the driver as one Gaurav and even clicked his photo on her mobile phone.

    "The woman clicked a photograph of the car's number plate and then made a PCR call to report the incident," police said.

    The cab was later found abandoned in Mathura and the driver’s mobile phone, which has a GPS system, was switched off, the DCP said.

    The woman is believed to have booked the cab through Uber, which, according to its website, connects "riders to drivers through our apps".

    "A case has been registered at Sarai Rohilla police station under Sections 376 (rape), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC.

    "Raids are being conducted to nab the driver, who is in his mid-30s," a police official said.

    The cab company released a statement late Saturday night, confirming that the driver in question had been suspended.

    “We became aware of the incident this morning. Safety is Uber’s highest priority and we are working with the police as they investigate, and will assist them in any way we can,” the release said.

    The incident comes at a time when the Capital is under a high-security alert following threats of a sensational terror attack by Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba. Vehicle checks have been stepped up across the city and anti-sabotage barricades put in place ahead of US President Barack Obama’s Republic Day visit to India.

    Note : i am not against that woman

    But want to raise some few points

    1) According to this article (if i believe in it) women and driver where alone .. then why didn`t she put fight ... she could have very well hit on men`s weakest point.......Was she not in state to fight ...that woman got frighten with rod .. She could very well used that rod in defence....

    2) Cab driver dropped her home after rape ....... seriously why would rapist driver cabbie drop her home ???? or how could that women travel with rapist who has raped her few mins back

    3)Women was able to click photo of driver and car number . (but was not able to fight :shocked: ) (... when pre-incident or post-incident photo was taken)

    3)Should there be cops on every isolated place just like one in between Sarai Rohilla and Inderlok"

    I would very much doubt this version


    Looks like another dharna moment / twieetr/face book war but just oppoenets have changed their place

    Incidents like these are sensitive issues & require analysis in detail.

    no hasty comments are called for !

    In any case rape has been confirmed after the medical examination.

    Being vulnerable or a" babe in the woods" alone, after a few drinks is dangerous & does invite undue attention.

    One must know how to hold one's liquor & pre program likely scenario's while travelling alone at night.

    Most unfortunate & reprehensible

    What is surprising is that a foreign company like Uber only relies on drivers using the company phone to work as a location tracker. Anyone can switch it off like in this case.

    In fact, Indian companies like Meru are deemed safer in this regard as the GPS tracker is built in the taxi itself and also the passengers are provided with a safety feature.

    when i head the news that is the first thing i thought. Dont know the details but from the reports it appears that she pass out and he has taken advantage of the situation.

    Driver will be held soon, he is identified. Now he will pay for his deeds.

    Start hanging the rapists.

    Do not let the lawyer use the court system for cheap,personal publicity.

    I do not believe the last rape/murder culprits on Delhi bus have been hanged, although they have been sentenced and sentence confirmed by higher courts. Lawyers always find a legal point to argue for months. That results in other criminals getting the cue that it is easier to subvert the legal systems.

    Sooner the rapist is hanged the easier it would be get the message across to other would be rapists to relent.

    Cab driver suspected of raping woman in Delhi arrested in Mathura

    NEW DELHI: The Uber cab driver suspected of raping a 25-year-old woman executive on Friday night has been arrested in Mathura on Sunday.

    Confirming the arrest of of the driver Shiv Kumar, Delhi Police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said a team of Delhi Police apprehended the alleged rapist in the Uttar Pradesh city.

    After failing to get any clues about the suspect's whereabouts, Delhi Police announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh to anyone giving information leading to his arrest just hours before he was apprehended.

    Police push away protestors from All India Students Association who demonstrate outside the Delhi Police headquarters after a taxi driver from the international cab-booking service Uber allegedly raped a young woman on Friday in New Delhi, on December 7, 2014.
    To apprehend the 32-year-old alleged rapist, Delhi Police carried out several raids in Delhi, UP and Haryana.

    Earlier on Sunday, another person thought to be Shiv Kumar was detained in Mathura. However, after investigations, Delhi Police said that the person was not the accused.

    A 25-year-old executive working for a global company was raped by a driver working with Uber, a US-based ride sharing service, when she was returning from a party in Vasant Vihar in south Delhi to her home in Inderlok in north Delhi on Friday night.

    Notice to the cab company

    Delhi Police has issued a notice to the cab company Uber asking it to be a part of the investigation. The American company has been given time till Monday for the same.

    :doh: what the hell ?

    You mean a executive of a company will go and have one night stand with an unknown cab driver whom she just met moments ago and then go on to frame him for rape ?

    And even if this was remotely possible,tell me what will a upper middle class woman gain by framing a poor taxi driver ?

    This is a little too far-fetched. In college parties or drunk events, one can understand such a thing happening. Not in this case, with a cab-driver of all people!
