     TWO WOMEN, both doctors, were allegedly harassed and manhandled by a pre-paid taxi driver who was ferrying them to Dwarka from Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport on Friday The women had landed in the city on a Kingfisher flight from Chennai.

     “We had asked the driver to take us to Dwarka’s Sector 7. But when we reached Dwarka he did not stop there and tried to take us somewhere else,” said Dr Anasuya Bagchi. Bagchi, who is posted with the World Health Organization (WHO), was in the city with her colleague Dr Geeta Joseph for a conference.

     “We had booked the taxi from the prepaid counter at the airport    Soon after the taxi started, another man came and sat on the front seat of the taxi. When we objected, the driver asked us to keep shut,” added Bagehi.

     She said even after reaching Sector 7, the driver continued to speed and took them to an unknown destination.

     “In the meantime, I called the police control room (PCR) and informed them. When the driver heard us he started yelling at us. He stopped the taxi in the middle of a lonely road and asked us to get off immediately It was almost 9.30 p.m. and quite chilly outside. Moreover, there was no one in sight at that time,” she said.
