FEMALE UBER CO-PASSENGER PHYSICALLY ASSAULTS JOURNALIST IN CAB

Uber pooling from Mahim to Lower Parel turned terrible for a 30-year-old Mumbai-based columnist, Ushnota Paul, who hails from Kolkata, when her co-traveler professedly physically ambushed her over a contradiction about dropping off travelers, detailed Mumbai Mirror.

Paul took an Uber cab from Mahim to Lower Parel on 25th June 2018 when the alleged assaulter was already present in the car. Another passenger was picked up after these two at Dadar.

The assaulter went into a contention with the Uber driver when he dropped the third traveler to start with, at Currey Road.

She allegedly shouted at him, revealing to him that she was the first to board and thus, had paid the most noteworthy passage in this way, she ought to have been the first to be dropped at her goal.

At that point, Paul pointed out that Uber does not reveal fare details. Paul told Mumbai Mirror, “Soon after I told her not to argue with the driver as he was on a pre-decided route, she shouted at me and asked me to keep out of it.”Paul also alleged that the assaulter slammed the armrest on her hand and asked her to remove her “dirty things”.

I was only telling her to calm down but she continued remarking on my appearance, saying ‘tum chinky log kahan se aa jaate ho’, referring to me as north-eastern owing to my looks,” said Paul.

As the car arrived at Urmi Estate in Lower Parel, the assaulter yanked Paul’s hair, scratched her face and arms before alighting and entering her office building.

Thereafter, Paul reached NM Joshi Marg police station to lodge a complaint, with help from the Uber driver.

The police registered a non-cognisable offence (NC) under Indian Penal Code sections 323 (for voluntarily causing hurt) and section 504 (for intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) against an unknown person.

Uber declined the police’s request to divulge the details of the alleged assaulter on grounds of their rules and security reasons when the police made the driver call up the cab service representatives.

However, when a police officer spoke with Uber later, they promised to reveal the details by Tuesday, that is, 26th June 2018.

An Uber spokesperson told Mumbai Mirror, “What has been described today is deeply upsetting and is completely against our ‘community guidelines’. The co-rider in question cannot access the app. We have promised the police any information that could be helpful in their proceedings. We are ready to support their investigation into the incident.”
