Uber driver molests daughters, arrested

Hyderabad: Rajendranagar police on Friday arrested an Uber cab driver for sexually abusing his minor daughters.

The accused wife was living separately for the past few years due to personal problems. His daughters used to visit him once in a while. When the 42-year-old driver visited his 16 and 17 daughters in December 2016, at their mother’s residence in Hyderguda, he sexually abused the girls.

The incident came to light three days ago, when the girls told their mother about the behaviour of their father. They also revealed that they were abused four years ago too by the accused at his house in Mehdipatnam when they went to visit him.

The mother lodged a complaint with the police on the basis of which Rajendranagar police registered a case on February 14. The Uber cab driver was booked and arrested under sections 376 (2) (f) of the IPC, sections 3 (b), 4, 6 of the POCSO Act.
