A cab driver was on Wednesday booked for molesting three minor sisters from Hansi during their visit to Gurgaon.


Police said the family had hired a cab to visit Shitala Mata temple in Gurgaon on Monday. "As the temple was overcrowded, the girls' father left his three daughters, aged six, eight and 10, in the cab and went inside the temple with his wife. On returning, the mother noticed that the girls were upset and refused to go inside the cab," a police official said.

On being asked for the reason, the girls told their mother that the cabby, Roshan Lal, had tried to molest them, the official said. However, instead of reporting the matter to the police, the parents took up the matter with a local panchayat. But after the matter was not resolved, they approached the police on Wednesday night.

The official said that the medical examination of the girls did not establish rape and the accused had been booked for molestation under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012, and forwarded the case to the Gurgaon Police for further investigation.
