"In a city that I call home, it made me feel extremely unsafe today. Took an Ola around the usual time, after work only to be with a driver who had the audacity to think he could masturbate in front of me. He kept at it thinking I hadn't noticed and kept at it," she tweeted.
She added that she somehow gathered courage and persuaded the driver to stop the vehicle.
