Hyderabad: A cabbie and his friend were arrested for allegedly molesting a woman who had hired their car for traveling to Vijayawada, police said Friday.
The driver, identified as D. Venu, and his friend B. Immanuel (both 25), were arrested last evening at Chintalkunta check-post by the Special Operation Team of Rachakonda Commissionerate.
The incident occurred on March 1 when the woman, 22, a hair stylist, hired the car for visiting her native place.

When she again started screaming, he pushed her out of the car and fled," said Rachankonda police commissioner Mahesh M. Bhagwat.
