Actress forcefully held by cab driver

There seems to be an eternal problem for people especially women using cabs as reports of bad service, unreasonable delays, verbal abuse and even rapes. Actress Aahana Kumra of 'The Accidental Prime Minister' and 'Lipstick Under My Bhurka' fame obviously had one such torrid experience. She had booked a cab with Make My Trip from Shimla to Amritsar but the driver had stopped the vehicle in Chandigarh claiming that he had not been paid. He also forcefully held Aahana ransom until the issue was resolved.

Aahana had taken to twitter and in a series of tweets has stated "I urge urge everyone to boycott @makemytrip . For a girl to be travelling through this company by cab or any other mode of transportation is extremely unsafe. The driver is a liar and not someone you can trust. All I want to do is reach my destination safely. Please help!!!!,"

"Now I'm being held ransom in the middle of the road out of nowhere @makemytrip for the payment that's not been received by the cab service. Please do not make this worst for me!! It's not safe!!!! she said in another tweet.

“Saurabh Khurana finally calls me after a hundred calls to the customer care service on @makemytrip . He's apparently someone from the management team and has no designation. #Sorry is not a word to be used in this business sir. You cannot risk someones safety and say sorry.”

"If it was Bom or Del I would've definitely canceled this cab but because it's Shimla and transportation isn't easy to find I have not been able to cancel this ride. @makemytrip you're an utter disappointment. No one should use this service for the sheer fact they have no regards."

When MakeMyTrip finally answered her, apologizing for the inconvenience caused, she tweeted in reply. "You don't regret anything @makemytrip You're a bunch of liars and don't care about the safety and security of your passengers."

"Sorry but who is going to be responsible for my safety and I wanted to reach in broad daylight and not at night. Please understand @makemytrip that this is not the safest bet for a woman to be traveling at night with an unknown driver. #EpicFail"
