A Delhi-based entrepreneur on Sunday shared a post on Ola’s Facebook describing her cab ride from hell when she noticed the driver secretly filming her on his mobile phone.
Priyanka Gusain was travelling to Chanakyapuri a little after noon and while commuting she went about checking her emails and answering calls. After some time, she felt slightly uneasy about the driver’s body language.
Just a few minutes later, Ms Gusain noticed the driver holding his phone in a strategic manner and his camera angled at her. She asked him to pull over, confiscated his phone and saw that he was actually recorded video of her.
“There it was, a video of me, all of me. My every gesture, movement, each word uttered was recorded on his phone. Never in my life did I ever feel this violated,” she says.
After confiscating his phone, she dragged the driver to a police station.
However, the shock for her was policeman saying, “Madam, ye chhoot jayega, it’s a bailable offence.”
“The driver is probably out right now, driving some girl somewhere and violating her in ways the law does not seem to recognise,” she says on Facebook, urging Ola to take strict action against the driver.
Ola Cabs commented on the post – first apologized and later, terminated the driver.
