Taxi driver accused of sexually assaulting three women including cab passenger

A TAXI driver is accused of sexually assaulting three women including a passenger in his cab.

Adil Taj, 41, allegedly assaulted the women between September 1 and September 28 in Glasgow.

Prosecutors claim Taj sexually assaulted the first complainer near Glasgow School of Art.

It is said Taj repeatedly attempted to kiss her and hold her by the body.

He is then claimed to have sexually assaulted a passenger in his taxi by asking if she wanted to kiss him and failing to desist when refused.

Taj allegedly stopped the taxi he was driving and entered the rear of the vehicle before exposing his penis and forced her hand on to it.

Taj’s final charge states the third complainer was sexually assaulted on various occasions at his flat in the city’s Springburn between September 27 and 28.

It is stated the woman was touched on the body and was told by Taj that he wanted to kiss her and struck her on the buttocks.

A hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Friday was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The case was dealt with administratively and a further hearing will take place in August.

Taj remains on bail for the matter meantime.
