    A Mumbai woman has accused a local taxi driver of unzipping his pants and stimulating his genitals while the woman was in the cab with her mother and sister on Thursday. The woman passenger shared the ordeal and the videos of the cab driver on Instagram.

    She wrote, “It took me hours to think if I should share this or not, but I am sharing it now. Before you judge ,e based on what I was wearing, I was wearing normal jeans and top.”

    She added, “We took this local taxi (worst decision ever) taking my mom and sister to Nariman Point on my way from Dadar. This driver as soon as I got into his local taxi, open his zip, was staring at me objectifying and was stimulating his genitals (I wish I could record that) every time he took halt on signals, making me feel so uncomfortable, it was morning 9:30 am).”

    The woman questioning the city’s safety wrote, “Being in Mumbai, I always felt safe and have never come across any such situation before. It’s called safe city. But if people like this can make someone like me who is a local resident of this city go through this, I wonder what women coming from other city could have gone through, it’s not the city to be blamed, but such people.”

    The woman also shared that the taxi driver was not letting the woman get out of the cab. She wrote, “Yes I got down abruptly in middle and no he wasn’t letting us get down until I forced voice, I said this where I could see Mumbai police around, later he was started saying sorry, stating he was poor but excuse me, being poor doesn’t give you right to sexually harass someone. What if it would have been late evening, me alone in this same situation. I always heard about all this until today I experienced this shit.”

    The woman along with sharing the number of the taxi also shared that she has lodged a complaint with the police.
