A 'share-auto' and his were arrested today for allegedly with a woman passenger recently, police said.

The and his friend were arrested for allegedly with the woman, a college student, they said.

She was staying at a relative's place for her education.

The woman had travelled in the share-auto on May 7 while returning from college and the duo tried to misbehave with her in an isolated place by using vulgar language and pulling her dupatta, police said.

She, however, managed to escape from them and narrated her ordeal to her relatives, following which they preferred a police complaint.

Following a probe into the matter, including enquiries with other share-auto drivers, the duo were arrested early this morning, police said.

Unlike regular autorickshaws, share autos carry several passengers and charge lesser rates.
