Mumbai: 

A rickshaw driver was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly flashing at a woman passenger in Mumbai suburb Kandivali, police said.

The incident came to light after a friend of the woman tweeted about it late Monday night and tagged Mumbai police.

"A rickshaw driver was masturbating while looking at my friend in the rear view mirror. He picked her up today at 10.50 pm from Kandivali station. As soon as she realised, she panicked and got down midway," the friend had tweeted.
