Senior Uttar Pradesh police officers in Mainpuri said Shiv Kumar Yadav, Uber cab driver accused of raping a woman executive in Delhi last Friday, was allegedly involved in a number of sexual crimes, including a rape case last year and a molestation case in 2003, both in Mainpuri. He was also booked several times under the Goondas Act and arrested for carrying illegal arms.

The revelations by the U.P. Police came even as their counterparts in Delhi filed two more FIRs on Tuesday: one against Uber and the second against Yadav for allegedly forging his character certificate.

Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi briefed the Home Minister and National Security Adviser Ajit Doval on the progress of the investigation.

Mr. Bassi told presspersons outside Parliament House that a number of busy places would be brought under the surveillance of nearly 10,000 CCTV cameras.
