In another reminder of how unsafe the city can be for its women residents, a 25-year-old woman, who was allegedly out on a joyride in her friend’s new Mercedes, was molested by him in broad daylight in South Delhi.
The police said the woman, who is an emcee and a model, went out with her friend for a ride on May 1.
They added that the man allegedly held her captive inside the car and drove around South Delhi for an hour before dumping her near her house.
The police have arrested the accused, Vineet Tokas, a businessman.
According to police, the incident took lace around 12:30 pm on May 1.
The two were familiar with each other.
“Tokas asked the woman to go on a drive with him to which she agreed. After some time, he tried to molest her,” said a senior police officer, requesting anonymity.
The police said that when the woman resisted, Tokas allegedly got agitated and began to force himself on her.
They added that Tokas continued driving the car and did not let her out.
All this continued for an hour.
“Later, he dropped her near her house and also threatened her with dire consequences, if she told anyone about the incident,” police said.
“The woman, however, informed her father about the incident as soon as she reached home. Her father filed a complaint at the RK Puram Police Station.”
A medical examination of the victim confirmed molestation.
The police then registered a case and later arrested Tokas.
Police said that after the incident, the woman went away to Dubai.
