The Bengaluru police announced the arrest of the Uber driver Basavaraju on Thursday, who is 25 years old, and a resident of Malleswaram. Sources state that he belongs to the Gadag district of the state.

The victim’s husband, Agarwal took to Twitter and stated “My wife booked an Uber to visit Manipal hospital for my son’s medical appointment. The cab arrived at our residence at about 11:05(Driver: Basavaraj, KA26A69391), and as soon as my family got in and before any movement they realized they had entered the wrong cab and immediately notified the driver. My son came out but the driver started to shout and accelerated the car, while my wife was still stepping out. He further came out aggressively and attacked my wife (by continuously hitting her on the head). My son, who came to the rescue, was also assaulted.”

He also said that even after the neighbors came to the rescue, the driver continued his rampage. When Basavaraju tried to escape he was caught at the community gates, after which a complaint was registered by the victim’s family at the police station.

Extended support was given to the victim’s family as Uber India responded to Agarwal’s post saying, “Behavior like this is taken seriously on our platform, Ajay. Kindly share your registered details with us via Direct Message. We will investigate further.”
