Uber India again in controversy as its partner driver allegedly tried to kiss a woman passenger in Gurgaon
App based taxi service provider company in India, Uber is again in controversy after a 21-year-old women has alleged that her Uber cab driver tried to kiss and molest her when she was travelling from Delhi to Gurgaon.

The incident took place on Sunday and the victim immediately registered her complaint over phone to the Uber representatives. An FIR has also been lodged with Gurgaon police by the victim under IPC section 354A.

The women claimed that when she reached her destination, she asked the driver to give her bags. While giving the last bag the driver as per her allegation asked for a hand shake and the women did it. It was then when the driver tried to kiss her hand, and when she tried to pull her hand back, he held it very tightly and forcibly tried to kiss her.

The woman's brother said that till now the Uber authorities have not taken any kind of action against the accused driver.

But the official Uber response posted by it on Facebook as a comment against the post of the victim's brother claimed that an immediate action had already been taken against the driver.

"Our team immediately reached out to the rider via phone within minutes of receiving the feedback....Uber has a zero-tolerance policy towards inappropriate behaviour and immediate action has already been taken with the driver partner even while the matter is being thoroughly investigated," Uber said.

Uber and app based taxi services provided by others are already under government's scanner after a Uber driver was charged with raping a lady commuter in December last year.

Government has already told telecom service providers to block the services of these app based taxi providers. However, their business is still running without any glitch.
