An autorickshaw driver in Bengaluru is seen smashing the helmet of a bike taxi rider, abusing him and threatening him in a viral video that has now triggered police action. The Bengaluru police have registered a case after the video was flagged on social media.
The bike taxi driver, who is reportedly from the northeast, works with the aggregator Rapido. In the video, the auto driver can be heard telling him that because of him, auto drivers are losing their customers.
“You come from a different place and do this service… It is a loss to auto drivers,” the auto driver says.
The incident reportedly took place on Monday near the Indira Nagar metro station in Bengaluru.
The video was shot by a witness, who later shared it on Twitter, tagging the police and requesting action.
