B'luru: Ola driver harasses woman, child locks cab; suspended

Cab aggregator Ola on Wednesday said it has suspended one of its drivers after a woman from Bengaluru filed a complaint alleging that he locked her up in the vehicle and misbehaved with her. And Rajashekar Reddy had a 4.9/5 rating, which is considered very good.

The complaint also said that the driver warned her of dire consequences if she would report the matter to the police or Ola Cabs management.

The incident occurred at around 10.30 pm on Sunday night.

The driver, Rajashekar Reddy kept molesting her and held her captive until he was forced to unlock the auto when she began screaming and banging the windows.

"We regret the unfortunate experience the customer had during the ride". I was looking out of the window when he suddenly stopped and started touching my legs.

"The police had also called up the driver and warned him from calling and threatening me". She approached the Madiwala Police Station but decided against registering an official complaint.

The woman in distress started banging the door hysterically-he let her go after some time. We have zero tolerance to such incidents and the driver has been suspended from the platform as an immediate action, upon receiving the complaint.

"Safety of customers is our priority and we will continue to extend our full support to this investigation against the driver", the statement said.

Another shocking incident was reported in September where an Ola cab driver allegedly assaulted a businessman with iron rod near CV Raman Road. Though the woman had complained to Ola via customer care, after which action was taken too, Ola representatives claimed they did not have any record of the complaint.
