Indian cabbie accused of raping Oz woman bought 'one way ticket to Delhi'
Sydney, July 19 (ANI): A 25-year-old Indian taxi driver, who has been accused of raping a woman in the back seat of his cab in Melbourne, had bought a one-way ticket to New Delhi after being interviewed by police at the time, according to a report.
Jaswinder Singh Mutta left Melbourne on the Thai Airways flight at 12.20am local time on February 6, 2010, after paying cash for his ticket.
Mutta was extradited back to Melbourne last week and was charged with two counts of rape and one count of indecent assault.
Police interviewed Mutta, who came to Australia in December 2008 on a student visa.
He denied the rape allegations and refused to take part in an identification parade or give a DNA sample.
According to The Age, Mutta was released by police because of insufficient evidence at the time.
The next day Mutta went to a Flight Centre office in Dandenong and paid 975.59 dollars for the one-way flight to New Delhi via Bangkok before flying out later that night, the report said.
Mutta was taken into custody by Indian authorities on January 5 this year before being extradited.
According to the report, it was the first time an Indian national had been extradited to Victoria. (ANI)
