Mumbai: Woman physically abused in Uber Pool cab by fellow passenger

Taking to Twitter, Ushnota Paul, a journalist, showed pictures of her injuries and described her harrowing experience. She also stated that she was racially abused during her Uber ride.

The woman had threatened that she would break the phone. Before the woman deboarded the cab at Urmi Estate in Lower Parel, Paul alleged that she was grabbed by her hair and was even scratched on her face.

Soon after the incident, she also filed a complaint with police, who registered a case against the yet-to-be identified woman.

"Reasoning with her was futile. She called me all sorts of names and tried to provoke me when I went completely quiet. She went on her abusive rant calling me the worst abuses that I'm too ashamed to mention," wrote the journalist.

Paul also wrote about how the driver and Mumbai police were supportive, but the cab aggregator - Uber - refused to share the contact details of the passenger, stating customer privacy.
