We have heard numerous stories of harassment and molestation by the cab drivers. Certainly, such incidents go on to prove that we are NOT safe here anymore.
But, it is always better to speak up about such issues than being a dud about it. Of course, you will find judgemental eyes everywhere, but somewhere out there someone is listening!
Thus, she filed a complaint about the driver. Here’s what she wrote:
Dear #UberIndia,On the 07th of May, I booked a cab from the airport to Pashan in Pune with you for a relative and her 2 boys! The driver seemed friendly and asked her where was she coming from and tried making small talks, to which she initially replied with politeness and later started ignoring.Now, this is what happens next. If this is not the beginning of harassment then what Is? I book my family with only uber because so far I felt safe and secure with you’ll. But not anymore!!!When he said he was the driver I thought my cousin left something back in the cab and he is meaning to return it.. but this is what the truth was!!Please see the pics attached!
Here’s what the conversation looks like:
And if that wasn’t all. Here’s another one!
And the Uber Team showed their concern taken by this creepy messages.

And, rightly they suspended the driver. Well deserved!
Also, THIS IS WHY WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT SEXUAL HARRASEMENT!
Suffering is not an option!
