Bengaluru:Rapido driver masturbated during ride



A Rapido bike taxi driver in Bengaluru has come under fire from a woman for allegedly engaging in lewd behaviour and sexual harassment by masturbating during the journey. According to reports, the event happened on Friday when he called a bike taxi after taking part in a rally against the violence in Manipur at the town hall. The inappropriate communications a Rapido driver sent to a woman have been made public.

 

After Bengaluru resident Athira Purushothaman published screenshots of abusive messages she received from a Rapido bike taxi driver, another instance of his sexual harassment came to light. Purushothaman claimed the driver contacted her constantly while they were driving and masturbated while doing so, forcing him to block her number.
The Bengaluru woman claimed that after taking part in a rally against the violence in Manipur, she had reserved a Rapido bike to travel home.
She was shocked when the driver arrived on a different bike from the one shown on the app. Purushothaman checked the driver's app to confirm the booking after he said that his registered vehicle was undergoing servicing.


She was astonished when the Rapido driver began masturbating on a remote section of the road during the trip. We arrived at a secluded location where there were no other vehicles during the trip. What's disturbing is that the driver began riding the bike with one hand while engaging in inappropriate behaviour by masturbating. I kept quiet during the episode out of concern for my safety,'' she wrote.In order to avoid having to give out her address, she paid for the bike taxi online and instructed the driver to drop her off about 200 metres from her home. However, her problems did not end there. He began phoning and contacting me on WhatsApp nonstop after the trip was done. To end the harassment, I had to ban her number,'' she claimed.

Drivers in Rapido have previously been charged with sexual harassment. A Twitter user using the handle "husnpari" published screenshots of offensive comments from what she claimed to be a Rapido driver in March of this year. According to her, the driver sent inappropriate texts after sharing his location with her via WhatsApp.
The media professional requested that Rapido investigate the situation and do background checks on the drivers while tagging Rapido's official Twitter account in his thread. Additionally, she said that the driver kept contacting her from several numbers.

The S.J.Park Police Station has been requested to take the necessary measures, according to Bengaluru City Police, who have taken note of the event.
It's shocking to see that this is not the first instance of a Rapido employee harassing clients. A Twitter user was harassed by a Rapido driver in March of this year after being dropped off at his location. According to screenshots he posted online, the driver only agreed to take him after seeing his profile photo.
Before sending his final, risky text, he wrote in Hindi, "And yes, one more thing, I am not a bhaiya (brother)," adding, "And yes, one more thing, I was far away, would not have come at all."
