A 32-year-old woman in New Delhi has been arrested after an autorickshaw driver complained that she forcibly tried to have sex with him, 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 at the Safdarjung Enclave police station told.
Driver Umesh Prasad, 41, alleged that one of the women, Renu Lalwani, hired his autorickshaw on Wednesday afternoon in Saket in South Delhi 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 foot”, Jha said.
Police said they had arrested Lalwani and were looking for the foreigner, identified only as Hitija.
Police found four badges and four driving licenses of auto drivers from Lalwani. Police believe the women may have been trapped other drivers similarly.
