Ola driver sexually harasses Bengaluru woman, suspended by company

A Bengaluru Ola cab driver allegedly locked up a 23-year-old woman passenger inside the auto and misbehaved with her, reported ANI. A similar disgusting shameful incident was reported from Hyderabad where the 26-year-old Uber driver was arrested after the woman passenger on board filed a complaint against the driver.

It was then she started banging the window following which the driver let her go.

The incident took place around 10.30 pm on Sunday, in a deserted spot on the Ring Road in south east Bengaluru.

The women made a complaint to the Ola Cabs safety team, according to which the driver, Rajashekar Reddy, on Sunday night misbehaved with her on Outer Ring Road and held her "hostage" for quite a while by locking the auto doors.




Following the incident an Ola spokesperson said, "We regret the unfortunate experience the customer had during their ride". I was looking out of the window when he suddenly stopped and started touching my legs. "We have zero tolerance for such incidents", an Ola spokesperson said in a statement to IANS. She said: "I shouted and asked him to stop the vehicle - -unfazed, and continuing his act, he very nonchalantly asked me what was wrong".

The woman was travelling alone from Indiranagar to BTM Layout in an Ola cab.

Interestingly, the woman told the New Indian Express that she had availed the Ola Select service on her mobile app, which helped customers get only the higher rated drivers to ply them.

The company urged the the woman to file a formal complaint, adding that it would give "full support" to the investigation against the driver. "He called the next day (Monday) and told me not to register a complaint against him", the victim said.
