The college student alleged that the Uber Auto driver named Selvam sexually assaulted her by pressing her right breast, near Ibis OMR Hotel, when her friend and she returned from East Coast Madras to the hotel.

She said that after waiting for 30 minutes, an inspector along with a man came to the hotel to investigate the matter. He asked them to wait till the morning to file an FIR, as there was no lady officer at the station. When she asked about the lady officer, the police allegedly said that it was an order of the government. She had to file the complaint outside the police station. She alleged that the station in charge gave them an A4 sheet to write an application instead of filing an FIR.

Nearly a month ago, six men were arrested by the Chennai police for kidnapping and raping a 40-year-old woman at knifepoint at the Bypass road of the city.

The Chennai police said that the victim was returning home after attending a temple festival. She sent her children along with her husband and booked the cab.

Uber launched an emergency assistance feature in July this year. It said that in case of any emergency, the riders or drivers would be able to share their live location.

sanitation workers die in Tamil Nadu

In an incident of manual scavenging, two workers died of suffocation while cleaning an unused sewer pit in a new house in Tamil Nadu. The incident happened in Kondur village in Villupuram on Monday. The police alleged asphyxiation as a preliminary reason for their deaths.

The deceased, identified as 38-year-old G Iyanar and 35-year-old K Manikandan, hailed from Paakam village. The two were engaged in constructing a house attached to a grocery store near the Kandamangalam area. The reports state the project was almost complete, but only the walls of the sewer had to be plastered.

Locals state that Iyanar and Manikandan were working in the sewer pit when they died on the spot. After receiving information about the incident, the police rushed to the scene.

Superintendent of Police N Sreenatha said the sewer had not yet been used. The men may have suffocated due to a lack of air circulation or due to a leakage of toxic gases from nearby sewers. The police have sent their body for an autopsy at the Mundiyambakkam Government Medical College and Hospital.

The reports state they had entered the manhole without any safety equipment to clean it. During this, they suffocated after inhaling poisonous gases and fell unconscious.
