The incident took place on Tuesday night in the Survey Park area.

“Following a complaint by the female passenger we have arrested the driver, identified as Mohammad Qurban. He has been booked for several offences including outraging the modesty of a woman,” said a police officer.

According to the complaint, the driver foul mouthed the 47-year-old woman after she objected to the driver taking a detour.

Earlier in July, another Uber cab driver was arrested for allegedly masturbating in the presence of a female passenger.

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.
