What Delhi Police Said?
According to DCP (outer) Harendra Singh the incident took place neat the Mangolpuri flyover “We received a call at 10.01 pm on Saturday about three men beating up a woman and shoving her into a car. The caller also shared the number of the car. We then found out that it is an Uber taxi.”
Singh speaking to ANI said that “Yesterday at 10pm, Mangolpuri police station (outer district) received information of three men beating a woman. Under the Indian Penal Code 365, a case was registered and an investigation was launched. As the taxi’s number flashed on call, alert for a search operation in Delhi and neighbouring areas was made and it was found registered under the name Shailender.”
Singh then added that “We tracked down the woman using her mobile number on Uber. She told us that she and her friend fought over some personal issues on the way to Vikaspuri. She got off the car near the Mangolpuri signal. Her friend also got off and physically assaulted her, forcing her to get back into the car.”
“The woman’s statement was recorded with a counsellor and medical assistance is being provided,” stated Singh, adding that the driver asked to leave the taxi once their arguement got heated and they’d recorded the statements of the people involved.
