New Delhi, February 3: A Uber cab driver accused of sexual assaulting a woman executive on Tuesday told a court here that he has not committed rape and he has been falsely implicated in the case.

Claiming innocence in the case, Uber cab driver Shiv Kumar Yadav told Additiol Sessions Judge Kaveri Baweja that it is a “false case”.

Quizzed by court as to why he was implicated in the matter, he said that he did not know why the woman lodged a false case against him, and denied the submission that he has raped the victim.

Yadav’s submission came while he was recording his statement before the court as an accused.

He confirmed that on the date of alleged incident, he has dropped the victim to her house by his car but denied that he had taken her in an isolated place. “After sitting in the car, she (victim) started crying and told me to drop her at Inderlok via Dhaula Kaun and Punjabi Bagh,” Yadav said.

“When I asked her why she (victim) was crying, she told me that it was not my business and after that I kept quiet.” He further added that he heard her talking to someone over phone that saying that she will marry her fiance but her friend (her childhood friend, who booked the cab that day) had not done good with her.
