An Ola representative confirmed that after the incident was brought to their attention, and after they spoke to the woman concerned, they temporarily suspended Reddy. "I threatened to break the window, it was only then that the driver let me get out of the vehicle", the victim told TNM.

She then ran few hundred meters until she could find an auto-rickshaw. Following this, she started receiving threat calls from Reddy, the complaint said.

The woman also alleged that the company did not inform her of taking any action against the driver. The frightened girl filed a complaint with Ola after reaching her house, and the driver was suspended. "Unfortunately, the complaint was registered only the next day", she added.
