An Ola cab driver was arrested here on charges of molesting a 23-year-old Belgian woman, police said on Sunday.

The driver, identified as Raj Singh from Rajasthan, has been terminated from Ola's platform, the company said.

In her complaint, the Belgian woman said she was travelling on Saturday in the cab from Gurgaon to Delhi when she was molested by the driver, Deputy Commissioner of Police Mandeep Singh Randhawa told IANS.

The driver had requested the woman to sit on the front seat to help him with the directions claiming the cab's GPS system was not working, Randhawa said.

The woman made the complaint on Saturday night, a few hours after the incident.

Ola said in a statement, "The driver has been terminated from the platform with immediate effect.

"We will share all required information with the authorities to help resolve this for the customer. We have zero tolerance for such behaviour from drivers."
