Cab driver masturbates in front of client, arrested by police
An Uber driver had been arrested by the police for allegedly masturbating in front of a passenger, while he was supposed to drop her in Delhi centre. The woman booked the latter’s services from Indira Gandhi International Airport to Barakhamba Road on Sunday. However, as the driver was driving, the woman was shocked to see that the driver was acting indecently.
The woman stated that the incident happened near National Museum on Janpath Road. She immediately pressed the panic button and called the police. The police arrested the taxi driver and early investigations revealed that the latter’s license was fake.
Some days ago, Vasant Kunj was arrested for the same reasons in southwest Delhi as he masturbated in front of two women. He was previously arrested under similar charges and spent fourteen months in custody.
As rape cases continue to raise outrage in India, the civil society’s new slogan for “Don’t protect women. Teach men how to behave” is a hope that the society will stop blaming women for rape.
