Ola suspends cab driver for harassing woman

He locked the doors and tried to touch me. "I complained to Ola on Sunday night". It was when the vehicle reached the Intermediate Ring Road that the driver allegedly attempted to sexually assault her, while she was in the backseat of the auto.

Recounting her ordeal to The Hindu, she said that the cab driver, Rajashekhar Reddy, stopped the vehicle at Intermediate Ring Road and suddenly she found him trying to catch her legs in the back seat. Speaking to OneIndia, the victim alleged that her complaints to the cab aggregator yielded no results and that the driver continued to harass her through phone calls the next day. When the woman shouted and hit the windows, he let her go with a warning that she would face dire consequences if she told about the incident to anyone, especially the police. "They then promised to suspend the cab driver but no senior official called me back to detail me the status of my complaint". She then ran away from the spot till she reached the Ejipura traffic signal, about 500 metres away.

"I have decided not to file a First Information Report (FIR)". "It all happened so suddenly that I was taken aback". Fearing an attack by Reddy, the woman approached the Madivala police and informed them about the incident.


"We are in the process of reaching out to the victim, instill confidence and persuade her to give us a complaint so that we take action against the driver", said a senior police officer from the Madiwala station.

Responding to the incident, an Ola spokesperson said, "We regret the unfortunate experience the customer had during their ride". We have zero tolerance to such incidents and the driver has been suspended 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 said driver", Ola Spokesperson said.
