Singer-actor Vasundhara Das has filed a police complaint against a cab driver in a case of road rage. The driver allegedly followed her for more than 4 km in Bengaluru on October 29, according to a report in Times of India. Not only did he follow her, he reportedly blocked her way twice and shouted filthy abuses at her.
Das, who is famous for her roles in films like Hey Ram and Monsoon Wedding, is also an entrepreneur. According to the police, the incident occurred around 4:30 pm.
Speaking to Times of India about the nightmarish experience, the singer said, “I filed a complaint and the law will take its own course. I have narrated the entire incident to the cops and shared all details.”
She was close to 13th Cross bus stand on Margosa Road in Malleswaram when the incident occurred. Police have registered the case under IPC 509, 341, 354 and 504. They are looking for the accused and also have the car’s registration number.
According to the police complaint filed by Das, she had stopped her car at a traffic signal and was waiting for the lights to turn green. Meanwhile, the cab driver in a Toyota Etios had stopped on her left side and was waiting at the same signal to turn right. When the signal turned green, Das went straight, preventing the driver from taking right, reports Times of India. This enraged the driver and he followed her, continuously honking at her. Eventually, he caught up with her and started hurling abuses at her and asking her to get out of the car. Traumatised, Das simply drove away. He reportedly followed her again, blocked her way and hurled abuses again. However, when cars started piling up, the driver reportedly fled.
The driver is still untraceable.
