Hang on @bbcnews Shashi Kapoor has died not Amitabh Bachan or Rishi Kapoor , who you've weirdly used to illustrate the story. The death of veteran actor Shashi Kapoor on Monday was mourned by millions and it was dubbed the end of an era, undoubtedly.

Following the incident an Ola spokesperson said, "We regret the unfortunate experience the customer had during their ride". She said: "I shouted and asked him to stop the auto - -unfazed, and continuing his act, he very nonchalantly asked me what was wrong". The driver took her to a deserted spot on the Ring Road in south east Bengaluru and suddenly stopped, the woman said. Fearing an attack by Reddy, the woman approached the Madivala police and informed them about the incident. He then tried to touch the woman inappropriately by reaching back from the front seat.

Interestingly, the woman told the New Indian Express that she had availed the Ola Select service on her mobile app, which helped customers get only the higher rated drivers to ply them. Even after that, the man continued to call and threaten the woman until she finally blocked his number.

The Ola cab driver in question meanwhile remains off road for now, says the company.

Now is the high time the firm owners take stringent actions against the perpetrators since this issue has now become a cause of concern and safety of passengers.
