Hyderabad: The Uber driver, who allegedly masturbated in the cab while dropping a 25-year-old woman to the RGI Airport on Thursday night, was arrested by the Cyberabad police on Saturday.
The incident took place while the techie was on her way to Delhi to celebrate Diwali. The accused is the owner of the cab and has been identified as Daadi Prem Kumar, 26, from Hafeezpet.
The investigation revealed a major lapse on the part of Uber as the registered driver was on leave and the owner of the cab drove it.
“We are investigating this negligence from Uber’s part. The photograph in the app was also too small to correspond with the driver,” said Mr Vishwaprasad, DCP Madhapur.
The victim sent a complaint via email to the Cyberabad police following which a case under Sections 354 A and 509 of Indian Penal Code was registered.
