A taxi driver was arrested on a charge of sexual assault after sexually assaulting several women who were passengers in his car, police in the United Kingdom said.

Now, Faruk Miah of Leicester, was sentenced to serve four years in jail after being convicted of sexually assaulting three women.

According to the police investigation, Miah took a female passenger from the center of Leicester, where she had been out drinking, to her home address.

When she got out of the taxi, he grabbed hold of her and asked her to kiss him. The victim pushed him away and complained to the police.

Later, it became clear that Miah had been accused of two similar offenses.

In both these previous cases, Miah drove the victims to their destinations, and while they were in a vulnerable position, grabbed them intimately and attempted to kiss them.

In light of the allegations, prosecutors applied to have these proceedings reinstated so they could be prosecuted together.

This was approved and Miah was prosecuted for all three offenses. He was found guilty at Leicester Crown Court, and sentenced to serve four years in prison.
