A woman from Bengaluru claims a Rapido bike taxi driver sent her indecent messages and masturbated while they were riding together. The woman described her ordeal in a post on Twitter and claimed that the man began masturbating halfway through the journey and continued to drive with one hand despite her requests to terminate the ride.


“During the journey, we reached a remote area with no other vehicles around. Shockingly, the driver began riding with one hand and engaging in inappropriate behaviour (Masturbating while riding the bike),” she wrote. “Fearing for my safety, I remained silent throughout the ordeal,” she added.

Her tweet has since received a response from the Bengaluru City Police, who said they will take the appropriate steps in this respect.

According to the woman, the driver rode a different bike from the one displayed on the app when he arrived. He clarified that the app user who had enrolled was receiving service.

“I asked him to drop me 200 meters before my actual destination to conceal my home location,” she said.

The woman also claimed that after the ride, the driver started calling her continuously and texted her on WhatsApp. She also shared a picture of his texts on her Twitter and wrote, “I had to block his number to stop the harassment.” After multiple cancellations by car cab drivers, the woman had booked a bike and was returning from attending the Manipur Violence protest at Town Hall in Benagluru.
