Cyberabad police arrest Uber driver who allegedly masturbated during ride”

Hyderabad Police have arrested a cab driver, working for cab aggregating service Uber, after a woman passenger complained that he was masturbating in the vehicle. The accused, Daadi Prem Kumar, has been identified as the cab's owner, reports DC.

The woman, who is a resident of Hyderabad's Kondapur, booked the cab on October 19 for airport to catch a flight to Delhi, the police said in a release. "He was driving on that day as regular driver was not on duty", said deputy commissioner of police P Viswa Prasad.

Today my #Uber driver thought it perfectly normal to masturbate while dropping me to the airport. The driver slowed down the auto on entering the Outer Ring Road, and the woman noticed him unzipping his pant and masturbating. "He slowed down the vehicle to about 50 kmph and kept glancing at the rearview mirror". She now got that courage to file a complaint with police. The mail was taken as a FIR and She Teams in-charge Saleema spoke to the complainant over phone and recorded her statement. She noticed what he was actually doing and asked him to stop that vehicle and left the place in another cab watching the ruthless man feeling no guilt.

She added that she began screaming at the driver and asking him to stop the auto.

Speaking to India Today after the driver's arrest, the woman said, "I am extremely thankful to the Hyderabad police for arresting him so quickly. The owner-cum-driver was arrested within no time and he is being remanded to judicial custody", a police officer said. They identified the auto and the accused driver.

Meanwhile, the popular app-based cab service company has fired the driver.

Uber confirmed that their team is now in the process of rectifying all driver profiles which have a single alphabet as their first name. Sharma is apparently not happy with Uber as they only fired the driver and apologised for the incident which, she said, is a very generic approach. "But there's no update on how they're looking to solve for this", she told NDTV. "The fact that their platform has no vehicle/driver info post the trip is also something to be looked at", she added.
