Yadav is in the custody of Delhi Police after he allegedly raped a 25-year-old woman in Delhi. A case of forgery has also been slapped against him for producing forged character certificate.
He tried to stall the investigators but broke down after hours of sustained questioning. He admitted beating the victim repeatedly after she resisted him. He also gave a sequnce of events of the fateful night.
According to Delhi Police sources Yadav lied a lot during interrogation. He told his wife that he had a fight with someone and a fake case filed against him.
The accused finally broke down during interrogation admitted that after picking the woman from Vasant Vihar he drove the car towards north Delhi. Near her house, he saw the victim sleeping and he took a detour and parked his car near garbage dump. When he tried to sexually assault her, the victim slapped her.
He then repeatedly slapped her and tried to strangle her. The victim then told him that he is a cab driver and could be traced. He then allegedly threatened to kill her.
To keep a tab on her, he copied her number on his phone and gave her missed call. He dropped the victim near her house and told her not to lodge a complaint. The victim accidentally send an SMS to him (instead to her friend) saying “I have been raped”. This alerted the accused and he fled.
The 32-year-old accused was arrested from his hometown in Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura. He allegedly raped a woman at around 9:30 PM on December 5 when the victim, who works for a finance company in Gurgaon, was heading back home in north Delhi’s Inderlok area.
