Ola suspends driver accused of molesting woman in Bengaluru

On Sunday night at 10.28, the woman booked an Ola cab from Indiranagar to BTM Layout, which was being driven by Rajshekhar Reddy.

"As soon as I managed to get home on Sunday night, I tried to lodge a complaint with Ola". Ola said it immediately suspended the driver from its platform.

During the trip, the driver, identified as Rajashekar Reddy, stopped the cab at the Intermediate Ring Road, locked the doors and started touching her inappropriately, the victim's complaint stated. The reports added that the woman was travelling alone from Indiranagar to BTM Layout when the cab driver parked the auto on an isolated road and allegedly locked the vehicle before groping her.

The driver then locked the doors engaging child safety locks and harassed her till she started banging on the door and screaming.

To her dismay, the woman's mobile battery had run out, and she couldn't call for help. He let me go then.

It was only upon reaching the Ejipura signal that she found an autorickshaw. "I have approached Ola and they have assured me that he will be taken off their system", the victim said.

"I have decided not to file a First Information Report (FIR). We have suspended the driver and extend full support to this investigation against the said driver". 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. "Ola has zero tolerance to such incidents and the driver had been suspended on receiving the complaint", Ola said in a statement, adding it had asked the customer to lodge a formal complaint with the police. 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.

"We regret the unfortunate experience the customer had during the ride".
