New Delhi: Two days after an Ola cab driver accused a group of Africans of assaulting him for refusing to allow more than four passengers in his vehicle, the Delhi police on Wednesday said it had identified the five accused but had no clue yet to their hideouts.

“We have identified all the five Africans. There are some problems but they will surely be caught very soon,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Ishwar Singh told IANS.

The DCP, however, refused to reveal their names and nationality.

Singh said an African woman Kefa, arrested on Monday morning soon after the incident, was not cooperating in the investigation and was very evasive.

“Kefa knows all of them very well and their whereabouts but is giving wrong information….”

Kefa, a 26-year-old from Rwanda, was caught from the spot in Mehrauli in south Delhi, while her five African friends fled after attacking taxi driver Nooruddin Ali, 51, early on Monday morning.

She is said to be staying illegally in India as her visa expired a few months ago.
