Woman hires cab for home; gets raped on way; police complaint filed

crime took place as she took an Ola cab in which the driver's relative was also present

A woman working in a call centre in Noida alleged rape on someone who was known to the driver of the Ola cab she had hired to reach home.

The crime took place as she took an Ola cab in which the driver’s relative was also present.

It has emerged in the complaint that the woman had booked an Ola cab from her workplace in Noida to Surajpur.

This is when the driver Ashok assured that the other man (cousin) would be dropped just ahead.

But the cousin was never dropped, according to the woman.

She told the police that the cousin, allegedly named Praveen, and her were taken by the driver to a forest area in Greater Noida.

She also alleged that she was served a soft drink on the way and it may have been laced with drugs.

Ashok allegedly stopped the car at a deserted location, asked the woman to leave the cab and left her and Praveen there.

It was then that Praveen allegedly raped her and managed to escape.

The woman tried calling the Ola driver but his phone was switched off.

The woman is said to be working in a BPO in Noida Sector 37 and has filed a police complaint.

Police says that both driver and his relative are missing as of now.
