A taxi driver who raped a drunk woman in his cab was jailed for six years today.
Anwar Sadat Chowdhury, 41, took advantage of the woman after she jumped into his taxi in Inverness town centre in the early hours of August 5, 2018.

Chowdhury tried to claim she was willing and had left his taxi happy but a jury unanimously found him guilty of rape on November 8 last year.
