A 22-year-old software engineer was injured when she jumped out of a moving auto rickshaw in Hyderabad after a man tried to molest her, police said on Wednesday.
The incident took place on Tuesday night in Hitec City. The woman suffered head injuries.
The woman told her friends that she boarded a sharing auto rickshaw after visiting a beauty parlour and was returning home.
As other passengers got off at their destinations, a man seated with her allegedly tried to hold her while the auto rickshaw driver diverted the vehicle. She then panicked and jumped out of the auto.
Hailing from Goa, the woman works at a software firm.
