BENGALURU, Dec 6 (Agencies): A Bengaluru Ola cab driver allegedly locked up a 23-year-old woman passenger inside the car and misbehaved with her, reported agencies.
According to reports, the driver used the 'child-lock' facility to hold the women passenger hostage in the vehicle on Sunday night. The reports added that the woman was travelling alone from Indiranagar to BTM Layout when the cab driver parked the car on an isolated road and allegedly locked the car before groping her.
