    OLA cabs it seems is sailing through some troubled waters. The incidents against the homegrown cab company are piling up big time as two other women passengers were troubled by an OLA cabbie in Bengaluru.
    A Facebook post alleged that an OLA driver stopped midway while ferrying two female passengers to talk to 6-8 of his friends.
    The Facebook post read, "My daughter aged 22 yrs, and her friend rode OLA cabs last night. Pick up point: Koramangala. The driver understood the directions very clearly and started the journey. Halfway through, at a very secluded, dark place next to the Hosur Road Cemetry/Baldwin Boys School, he abruptly stopped the car and got out where 2 other cars were waiting and proceeded to have a conversation with 6 to 8 odd Men."
    "My daughter actually questioned him 4 times as to 'WHY' he was stopping in this place, he refused to answer her . She and her friend sat in shock and were in panic, when she called me...The driver returned to the car and said he was Chatting with friends."
    The driver then dropped the females passengers off at a hotel which the women had given directions to but the driver allegedly hung around after dropping off the women.
    The girl then met her family who too had reached that hotel by that time and the father later called up the driver to ask him about his stoppage.
    "I called up the driver to ask as to why he had stopped the car on route, and believe it or not... he was extremely abusive and used profound vulgarities, demanded my home address and said he would be there in 10 minutes with other OLA drivers to 'teach me a lesson'," he wrote in the post.
    We are still waiting to hear from OLA regarding the security checks that they employ while screening their drivers and cars.
