Dec 17 2016
Police in New Delhi said today they have arrested a driver for allegedly raping a woman in his vehicle, as the Indian capital marks the fourth anniversary of the fatal gang-rape of a student. The girl, a resident of Noida, was waiting for a bus near AIIMS on Wednesday evening when the accused Avneesh (28), driving a auto which had a Home ministry sticker on it offered to drop her.

It is believed that the victim was raped between 11 pm to 12 am in the Moti Bagh area by the cab driver.
The incident comes on the fourth anniversary of the gangrape and murder of Nirbhaya, a 23-year-old paramedical student. "He has been interrogated and arrested", said DCP South Ishwar Singh.
The woman had come to Delhi on Wednesday in search of a job. That was when the vehicle bearing an MHA sticker - determined by the police to be fake - pulled up, and the suspect, who was driving it, offered her a lift. She also said a medical examination of the victim had confirmed that she had been raped. "Based on this information, along with technical surveillance and analysis of call detail records, Avneesh was arrested late on Thursday night, from Moti Bagh area where he was found drinking with one of his friends".
