Ever since the private cab services have entered Pakistan it has made our lives much easier. But with that comes the safety of customers and the drivers as well. Companies such as Careem and Uber have established a huge market for themselves. Still we hear news related to incidents that occur with customers or drivers on social media.
However, everything doesn’t always go well. We do know that the captains come from different backgrounds, they have different personalities and nature, which is
A famous actress from Karachi faced just that. Nazish Jahangir Khan who has worked with HUM TV in the past, went through something regrettable. This is what she wrote on her Facebook profile:
“Careem is not safe at all I had the awful incident yesterday and I am still in that trauma how they can hire such people ..person named with MASHAL KHAN..the time I sat in car his tone was “chal k thora agy ajati hum tum logon k nokar nahi.
I was shocked but as I was getting late from my work I asked him what’s wrong with you gari chalayain ap, and he started shouting on me and used abusive language then it was something else and I couldn’t control myself and I abused him back and asked for stop the car on sea-view. He locked the car and said I’ll take you to my brother I won’t stop the car.
I pulled down the mirror and start screaming..my friend who lives on sea-view he was out on signal already he saw me he tried to stop him but driver crossed his car and near to Burger King he stopped the car and ran away towards dolmen his car was there I was in it car was all open. I called 1/5 already police came and all but he didn’t came back for 3 hours. It’s not just a guy misbehaved with me ..its more than that as he put my safety in danger… he tried to kidnap me and terrorized me, it ruined my trust on Careem. They shouldn’t hire such uninformed people. #Karachi”
This is something really serious and should be taken under consideration! Companies like Careem and Uber should inquire more while hiring captains!
