On Sunday a gangrape case was reported from Mumbai, where a cab driver and his friend had gang-raped a woman after the victim had taken the cab while returning to her home.In yet another shameful incident which shows nothing has changed in the national capital in years, a 19 years old mall employee was gang-raped by a BPO cab driver and his friend.

According to Hindustan Times, the victim who works in a Gurugram mall left the mall at around 10:30 pm for returning to her home in east Delhi. The cops said that the victim left the mall at around 10:30 pm and moved to Shankar Chowk and took a BPO cab.

In most of the cities, such cab drivers who work with IT or BPO companies pick up general passengers on their way when they are off duty, at normal fares to add some extra income to their pocket.


“The driver told the woman that he would drop her to Uttam Nagar Metro station for Rs 30. From there, she would take the Metro to east Delhi,” the officer said to HT. The cop further said that since the BPO employee who was scheduled to be picked hadn’t turned up, cab driver decided to provide a lift to the people and earn some extra income.

The victim said that when she boarded the cab there were two men already there apart from the driver. Out of them, one was a passenger who later got down after some time. According to the cops, the driver confessed that once the male passenger got down, he along with his friend made a plan to gangrape the woman.


The driver then took the cab to an unfamiliar route and threatened the woman to kill her if she made any noise. Once the van reached a secluded spot on Delhi-Haryana border, the two accused gang-raped the woman.Since the woman was afraid that the duo would kill her she didn’t protest or make any noise.

The duo then threw her out of the cab outside Dwarka Sector 21 metro station at around 12:30 am Sunday.The woman then called some of her friends following which a police complaint was filed. The girl’s medical reports confirmed rape.


Taking a cue from the CCTV and the number of the cab noted by the woman the cops arrested the cab driver who used to work for a BPO company.

Governments may come and go, years will pass, but one thing which is not going to change is the pathetic state of women’s security in India. The news is very similar to the incident which was reported in Mumbai and proves no city or public transport is safe for women.
