A Uber driver, Shehbaaz Shaikh (32), has been captured for professedly attacking an exile lady working in Mumbai who was voyaging alone in his taxi from Pali Hill in Bandra to Versova late on Wednesday.
Uber suspended the driver quickly after subtle elements of the occurrence were set up by a companion of the expat lady on Facebook on Thursday. At first the expat lady drew nearer Khar police to stop a dissension, however she was coordinated to Santacruz police headquarters, where the driver was reserved for shocking humility and captured on Friday.
He will be created in court on Saturday, Mumbai police representative DCP Ashok Dudhe said. Cops found Shaikh on the premise of points of interest gave by the taxicab aggregator.
On Wednesday, the expat had gone to a companion's place in Bandra. When she was going to abandon, her companion said in her FB post, "she inquired as to whether Uber was sheltered and every one of us bounced to guarantee her that she was in Bombay and she doesn't have anything to stress over. Tragically we were demonstrated off-base."
Giving points of interest of the episode, the companion composed: "The driver at first addressed her in a benevolent way and asked her where she was from and made casual banter. Later, he said that since the streets in Mumbai are shocking she was welcome to come sit in the traveler seat in advance with him. When she can't, the driver whined about low perceivability through his back screen and advised her he was going to pull over to clean it. She was extremely uncomfortable however permitted him to stop to clean the screen. She was amazed when he returned to the seat under the affection of cleaning the window from within and continued to put his hand on her thigh and attempted to grope her."
The lady then attempted to push him off and just when she began yelling at him did he do a reversal to his seat. She figured out how to bounce off the taxicab and return home, the post expressed. A source near the expat said the episode may have been a rehash of the 2014 Delhi situation where a 27-year-old was assaulted by a Uber driver when on her way back home from a supper party, however the lady raised a caution and yelled at the driver before figuring out how to get away.
A Uber representative said, "We have suspended the driver from our stage and have shared all subtle elements identified with the outing and the driver with the pertinent powers (Mumbai police) for authority examination."
