Mumbai: Nilofer Hussain, daughter of Sayed Hussain, the taxi driver who was killed in a drunk-driving accident on the Eastern Expressway in Mumbai, has told the media that she will “ensure justice for her father”.

The accused Janhavi Gadkar, was driving her Audi Q3 at a speed of more than 120kmph, when she slammed into the taxi. The impact was so strong, that the front of the taxi was entirely crushed, instantly killing the 57- year- old Sayed Hussain. Gas cutters had been employed to retrieve his body from the damaged car.

“Irresponsible, is small word to describe the people who did this. How can you do this? This happens because people have an attitude that it is India, and anything can be done here. That is the main reason why people think that drinking and driving is okay. Because they think, at the end of the day, if they have money, they can get away with it. People need to change their attitude,” she told a news channel.

Nilofer told the media outlet, that the news of the accident came as a big shock to the family, as her father, who had been driving a taxi for the past 30 years, was never involved even in a minor accident.

“This is absolutely horrendous. My dad has been working as a cab driver since a long, long time. He has been driving for more than 25 years and his has been the safest pair of hands behind the wheel. He has worked extremely hard all his life and he has never had any accident. Not even a minor accident.”

Nilofer added, that none of the authorities tried to reach out to her family.

“We haven’t even heard from the police. They have not even acknowledged us. No one has even turned up to say what has happened. Just because he was a cab driver, it does not mean that he had no existence. This is nonsense, what were the police doing?”  Nilofer  was reported as saying to NDTV.

Online food ordering and delivery platform Swiggy on Monday said it would use privately-run ICICI Bank to allow its delivery fleet to make digital payments.

“Through the use of Unified Payment Interface (UPI)-based solution for instant fund transfers and automated cash deposit machines at ICICI Bank branches and ATMs across the country, the delivery fleet will have a hassle-free way of transferring funds,” the company said in a statement. Swiggy operates with a fleet of over 20,000 delivery persons delivering food from over 25,000 restaurants across 12 cities.

With cash-on-delivery being a widely used method of payment on the platform, the digital payment methods allow the delivery men to quickly transfer the funds to Swiggy, saving their time, according to the statement.

“With the delivery fleet being the backbone of Swiggy, the adoption of the digital payment solutions will support the ease of operations and save their time and thousands of kilometres of travel,” said the company’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Rahul Bothra in the statement. The digital payment methods will also help in preventing any cash leakages, the company said.
