The cabbie accused of rapinga drunken female passenger said in court Wednesday that he doesn't know how his DNA got on the woman's body, according to reports.

Gurmeet Singh, 40, of Queens, was arraigned Wednesday for allegedly raping and robbing a 26-year-old woman after picking her up in Brooklyn on May 6. He was held on $1 million bail.

According to court documents, Singh told police, "I did not rape anybody," adding, "I do not know how my DNA got" on her, published reports said.

He admitted to having sex with prostitutes in the backseat of his car, saying, "sometimes I pick up women, call girls, off the street and have sex with them."

Cops are also investigating whether Singh assaulted a drunken 23-year-old female passenger in September, the NYPD said. In that attack, Singh allegedly walked her into her apartment and raped her and stole items.

Singh is due back in court Jan. 13
