A 25-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a radio cab driver in north Delhi’s Sarai Rohilla late Friday night.

The woman, who works for a finance company in Gurgaon, told police she boarded the Uber cab at 9.30pm from south Delhi’s Vasant Vihar, where she had gone for a party with friends.

She was raped at an isolated place between Sarai Rohilla and Inderlok, police said, adding the cabbie threatened to kill and sexually assault her with a rod if she resisted him. He dropped her home after the attack.

The incident has once again thrown questions on the safety of women in our cities.
