New Delhi: A woman has accused a senior official of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) of sexually assaulting her in south Delhi's Sarojini Nagar, police said Saturday.

Based on a complaint filed by the victim, a case was registered at the Sarojini Nagar Police station, they said.

The case has been transferred to the crime branch.

The victim was employed at an Aadhaar office situated near Pragati Maidan metro station, the police said.
