NEW DELHI: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today sought a report from Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on the alleged molestation of a 23-year-old Belgian woman by a cab driver in the national capital last night.

Swaraj said the government was committed to the safety of all foreign nationals in the country.

"I have asked Lt Governor Delhi for a report on the molestation of a Belgian girl by a cab driver," the Minister said on Twitter.

"We are committed to the safety and security of all foreign nationals in India," she said.

The Belgian woman was allegedly molested by an Ola cab driver in south east Delhi's CR Park area last night with police arresting the accused hours later.

The accused, Raj Singh, is a native of Rajasthan's Alwar district. Ola has also terminated the driver from its platform.

The woman, who identified herself as a translator, told police that she had booked the cab from Gurgaon on the outskirts of the city and during the journey the cab driver allegedly molested her.

"The driver deliberately took the wrong route after Hauz Khas and when the woman told him that she will ask her friend, he took her phone and deleted all the records related to Ola," a senior police official said.
