Cab services are just a touch away for today’s generation. A big relief from the auto fetching or fare bargains but what do you do when the cab you hired becomes an even bigger trouble for you? Time and again, cab company majors like Uber and Ola have been embroiled in news for their misbehaviour. And this is not just the case with Indian cab drivers but in bigger countries like US and Germany as well.

One shocking harrowing experience of an Uber user came to light through a Facebook post that recently went viral. The user, Sreyoshi Guha Thakurta from Kolkata had hired an Uber Pool cab along with a friend but the ride was anything short of merry.

In the post, Sreyoshi mentioned how she was abused by the cab driver on being asked to drop her off across the road. Not just that, the driver further called her friend, from whose number the cab was ordered and threatened her. He told her that he will send across goons to pick her up (probably confusing her for Sreyoshi).

The incident left the girl appalled by the driver’s behaviour. She also contacted the Company to complain about the same but no satisfactory response came from their side.

Thrakurta, along with her post shared the details of the driver and the car number. Further, she plans to lodge a Police complaint as well. As for now, the incident has sent chillers down the spine considering the negligence companies are paying to their passengers and the risks the customers are investing in.
