NEW DELHI: A second arrest has been made on Saturday by the Delhi police regarding the physical assault of an Ola cab driver by a group of six African nationals earlier in the national capital.
26-year-old Nigerian woman has been identified as Janet was involved in the assault along with four others, she has been arrested. A Rwandan woman, identified as Kefa, was arrested on May 30, the day the incident was reported, police said.
Both Janet and Kefa were allegedly living here with expired visas. While Kefa was arrested once in Bangalore last year, records pertaining to Janet are being checked, the official said.
The four accused men have also been identified. Efforts are on to arrest them, the official added.
From preliminary investigation, it has emerged that Janet and Kefa had booked 51-year-old Nooruddin's cab through Ola services for Dwarka. Once he arrived at Rajpur Khurd, the same locality in which African persons were allegedly attacked by locals earlier, he saw that six persons -- four men and two women -- were waiting for him.
He had alleged that the group was drunk. As he refused to take more than four passengers, a heated argument broke out and he was allegedly thrashed by them on May 30.
Meanwhile the Delhi police are holding several sensitisation meetings in with local residents and African nationals in different parts of the city, in continuation of its bid to ease the sense of insecurity among the people of African-origin after a spate of attacks on the community.
