Yet another allegation surfaced against a cab company raising questions over safety of women in metropolitan cities.

The 23-year-old woman who works as a fashion stylist had hailed an Ola cab to travel from Indiranagar to BTM Layout at 10.30 pm on Sunday, December 3rd.

She alleged that the driver stopped the cab at the intermediate Ring Road and tried to touch her inappropriately.

The driver, Rajashekar Reddy kept molesting her and held her captive until he was forced to unlock the auto when she began screaming and banging the windows. "He tried calling me later to warn me but then I blocked his number", the woman was quoted as saying by NDTV.

She then started banging on the vehicle windows, after which he let her out. The woman ran for 500 meters till she reached the Ejipura traffic signal. The cabbie identified as Rajshekhar Reddy made several calls to the woman, threatening her with dire consequences if she complained against him.

She went to the police but decided not to file a complaint as the driver had been warned. She, however, reported the incident to Ola but claimed that no response has been received so far. When the police investigated, Reddy defended saying that he did not molest the woman and only tried to help her open the door which was child-locked. Even now they haven't told me what action has been taken. "He was rated 4.9 on the app", the woman said. "What is the company doing to ensure women who use the service are safe?" she asked.

Now is the high time the firm owners take stringent actions against the perpetrators since this issue has now become a cause of concern and safety of passengers. Ola said, "We regret the unfortunate experience the customer had during her ride".
