GUWAHATI, Aug 4: In a worrying incident that raises alarm on the safety and reliability of app-based taxi services, a lady school teacher in Guwahati was allegedly assaulted by a driver of a Uber Cab on Thursday.<br />

The aggrieved teacher, who is a faculty at New Guwahati Adarsha Shishu Bidyalaya, lodged an FIR at Paltan Bazar police station.<br />

As per complaint, the victim booked a Uber ride from Bamunimaidam to Lachit gar around 2 pm. As the ride reached near her home the driver refused to enter the by-lane of her residence, stating that he had another booking and that she should get off there.<br />

When she asked him to drop her at the booked location he argued and tried to move to an unknown location with her still in the car.<br />

“When I insisted on getting down at my residence (drop location) he made a sudden dash to another road with me still inside the car. I then raised a hue and cry and a while later the car slowed down in traffic. I somehow maged to make him stop the car and he literally threw me out of the car, hurting me in the process,” the lady teacher said.<br />

The teacher underwent treatment at the MMCH. Police said that the case is being investigated and the Uber driver also has lodged a complaint against the lady teacher.</p>
