The Sonipat police arrested a taxi driver on Thursday in a major breakthrough in the MG Road incident where two students were harassed and groped by two men on Friday night.
“We identified Ravinder, a taxi driver and a resident of a village in Delhi, through the CCTV camera footages. He was arrested early morning from Gurgaon on Thursday,” SHO Rishikant, Rai police station, told HT.
Rishikant said that it was clear in the CCTV footage that Ravinder was standing besides the two girls and tried harassing them later.
“He has also revealed the name of one of his friends and we are trying to locate him as well,” he said.
Ashwin Shenvi, Sonipat Superintendent of Police, said that though the case was registered in Sonipat, they had shared the information with the Gurgaon police. “After going through the CCTV footages, we identified the man and the Gurgaon police helped us nab him,” Shenvi said.
The accused will be presented before a magistrate on Thursday. The Sonipat police will be transferring the case to the Gurgaon police for further probe.
The two students had gone out to enjoy at MG Road on Friday night. They bought liquor and were returning to their home nearby when they were harassed, taken for sex workers and groped by two men.
One of the two girls also took to Facebook to narrate her ordeal but the incident came to light when they registered an FIR at the Rai police station in Sonipat on Monday evening.
