Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today slammed the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) and Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung over the alleged rape of a 20-year-old girl in Moti Bagh area of the national capital.

The alleged rape brought back memories of the horrific 16 December Nirbhaya gangrape case. The 20-year-old girl was from NOIDA and came to Delhi in search of a job.
The accused driver who was driving a rental car bearing a Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) sticker has been arrested by the police.
After searching for a job the whole day, the girl was waiting for the bus around 9 pm on Thursday night near All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), when a Maruti car stopped by and the driver offered to drop her to NOIDA.
It is alleged that from 11 pm to midnight, the driver molested the 20-year-old and raped her near Moti Bagh area.
The girl managed to run away somehow and reached the police, who were patrolling near the South campus area.
The PCR van took the victim to the police station and a medical check up was conducted.
The accused driver had fled from the spot after leaving the car.
The police has registered a case under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 357 and 376 and arrested the accused from his friend's house.
