eleven-year old girl from a high-pro­file south Mum­bai school was al­legedly mo­lested in a taxi on Tues­day. The girl, who was on her way back home from school, had to jump from a speed­ing taxi to es­cape the 60-year-old driver, who re­fused to stop the ve­hi­cle, the po­lice said.

The ac­cused, Mo­hom­mad Mirzee, a res­i­dent of JJ Marg, was ar­rested on Tues­day.

He was pro­duced in the ses­sions court and has been re­manded in po­lice cus­tody un­til Septem­ber 11. “We ob­tained CCTV grabs from cam­eras in south Mum­bai and iden­ti­fied the taxi’s reg­is­tra­tion num­ber, which led us to his res­i­dence,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer.
