Software engineer says auto driver misbehaved with her

A software engineer has lodged a complaint against an auto driver accusing him of sexually assaulting her recently in Indiranagar. 

The woman, a resident of Konena Agrahara, had hired an auto on April 28 at 9 am to reach her friend’s home. She got down at a signal near KFC in Indiranagar and the driver demanded her to pay Rs 40 extra on meter.

In retaliation, the auto driver too slapped her. They continued to fight and  the driver fled as people started gathering, said the police.

The woman had clicked the picture of the auto rickshaw in her mobile phone and shared the registration number with the police.

“He started a fight without any provocation. He touched my body and behaved in an objectionable manner besides slapping me on my face. Hence, stern action should be taken against him,” the woman stated in the complaint.

“We are trying to trace the auto rickshaw driver. The auto was sold to four persons, said DCP (East) Satheesh Kumar.
