Meerut: Police have arrested the bus driver and conducted on charges of sexually assaulting a woman. The woman was violated by the suspects at a flat belonging to them, and not in the moving bus as earlier mentioned in the FIR. The victim revealed this crucial piece of information during the investigation.

Meerut (City) SP Akhilesh Narain Singh said the woman had known the bus driver. “She left her in-laws’ place in Meerut at 4 pm on Friday to reach her native place in Mirzapur. She contacted the driver, Sunil Chaudhary, and reached the bus station from where she was taken to a colony. He was joined by the bus conductor, Arvind Kumar. All the three consumed liquor at the flat. The two took turns to rape her,” said Singh, adding that call details of her phone helped police trace the accused.

With the help of women’s last dialled number they could locate the driver. The location of her phone helped police to locate the flat where a liquor bottle and three empty glasses were recovered. Out of suspicion, police traced Chaudhary’s location to Ghaziabad as he drives a bus on the Meerut -Ghaziabad route. “We arrested him late on Saturday night when he returned to Meerut bus station,” said Singh.

Police claimed that Chaudhary confessed to the crime. The conductor, who lives in Modinagar, was arrested
on Sunday. A First Information Report had been lodged at Brahmpuri police station by the victim’s husband whom she married three years ago, police said. Further investigations were on, police said.
