Gurgaon: A 40-year-old driver of cab service provider Uber was arrested here on Tuesday for allegedly molesting a woman passenger.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Rajesh Singh said Vinod was taken into custody after preliminary investigation revealed he had kissed the woman's hand on Saturday night.

A case was registered on Monday. The driver reached the Gurgaon Sector 56 police station on Tuesday morning after police asked him to join the investigation.

"We questioned the victim and the accused separately. After recording their statements, we found that Vinod had kissed the victim's hand," Singh said.

Vinod is a resident of Shahbad Mohammadpur village in Dwarka in Delhi.

He has been charged with making physical contact and advances, involving unwelcome and explicit sexual overtures.

The accused, who joined Uber on May 4, will be produced before a court on Wednesday.

The woman, who resides in Delhi's Rohini area, alleged that Vinod molested her on Saturday night in Gurgaon's Suncity area when she got off the taxi to go to a friend's house.

She said he kissed and molested her, and fled after she raised an alarm.

In December, a 25-year-old Delhi based woman working in Gurgaon was raped by a Uber cab driver in Delhi's Sarai Rohilla. The driver is in judicial custody and facing trial.
