As per Police, Uber did not even bother getting a Police verification of the driver done before contracting him to drive for them. If true that is a real low for them.
Anyone using a taxi in India (specially at night), please be overtly careful. I know of guys who dozed off and were driven to a secluded spot and robbed. You just can't trust anyone in this land. Shithole it indeed is.
okay, i read this news yesterday night. incidentally my sister was in a an Uber half an hour away from my place. I called her and asked her to send a screenshot of driver as well as told her to be careful.
thought Uber is safe..guess not. Atleast ola and taxiforsure have GPS installed.
