Bengaluru October 3: In a shocking incident, a woman who was on her way back from Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) was dropped by her Ola driver in a poorly lit area, inspite of she insisting him to take the Ballari Road. She was on her way to Indiranagar and had just landed KIA after a trip to Colombo.
According to a Times of India report, within 10 minutes of her ride, the woman realised that the driver was taking the Begur road and not the usual tolled NH-44 route which she takes. When she told the driver, the latter refused to turn the car saying that the map is showing the route. Bengaluru Ola Driver Shows Porn Clip to Woman Passenger, Culprit Absconding.
The woman panicked and she pressed the emergency button, that is when the driver asked her to get down from the car in the middle of a deserted place which was dimly lit. She was aghast because of the recent memories of a Kolkata model who was murdered on that route. She then called a friend who also arrived in the city on the same flight and he picked her up from the spot.
What was more shocking for the woman was the attitude of the cab aggregator. When she pressed the emergency button, she received a support call, but the caller placed the call on hold it got disconnected in the while. After some time, she got an email from Ola stating that her problem has been resolved and the ticket is being closed. Only after she tweeted and tagged the founder of the company, a supervisor called her. On Monday evening, she filed a complaint with the KIA police about the incident.
