Tweets that can give chills, Delhi woman narrates horror of Uber driver

Noida: A Delhi-based woman, Ananya Bhattacharya spoke her experience on Twitter at midnight on Tuesday after being terrified by an Uber driver.

She narrates a horrific experience when she booked an Uber at 10:55 PM. She was travelling alone with the driver -who she claims was under the influence of alcohols and pan- when he stopped the car on a deserted road of the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway.

This is what she narrates:

While speaking to the Quint, bhattacharya said: “It was one of the unsafe places in Delhi/NCR and then he switched on the lights. Why would someone do that? As people will come to know who’s sitting inside. I lay low till my friend arrived,” adding that the incident left her shaken.

In a response by Uber, spokesperson said:

“This is a regrettable and concerning incident. We are internally reviewing the matter and the driver was immediately barred from accessing the app.”

But the most concerning part it, Uber drivers are repetitively being accused as criminals and abusive by the women. This is not the first incident reported by a woman against Uber driver.
In 2014, an Uber driver was convicted of raping a female passenger. The controversy had compelled Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick, to take a temporary ‘leave of absence’.
