Woman held for allegedly molesting auto driver

New Delhi, July 16 (IANS) A 32-year-old woman here has been arrested after an auto-rickshaw driver complained that she forcibly tried to have sex with him, Delhi Police said on Thursday.

Another woman, said to be from Tanzania and who reportedly tried to film the act, was on the run, Inspector Vishuddhanand Jha of Safdarjung Enclave police station told IANS.

According to police, driver Umesh Prasad, 41, alleged that one of the two women, Renu Lalwani, hired his auto-rickshaw on Wednesday afternoon in south Delhi’s Saket area and wanted to go to Arjun Nagar, about seven kilometres away.

At Arjun Nagar, she invited the driver to her flat on the pretext of paying him.

“After offering him water to drink, Lalwani suddenly locked the doors from inside and sought sexual favours from the driver which he denied,” Jha said.

The woman “then offered him wine which he again refused to take. Frustrated, she forced herself on him, tore his clothes and kissed him while her roommate filmed the whole incident”, the officer said.

After about an hour, “when the two women went to the other room for a discussion, the driver jumped out of the first floor balcony and fractured his legs”, the police official said.

“At Saket, Lalwani had borrowed Rs.300 from the auto-rickshaw driver, saying that she would return the money after reaching her destination but instead robbed him (driver) of all his money,” he added.

Police said they have arrested Lalwani and were looking for the foreigner, identified only as Hitija.

Police have recovered four badges and four driving licenses of auto drivers from Lalwani. Police believe the women may have trapped other drivers similarly.
