The woman asked her friend before she was leaving from Bandra that is uber-safe to travel ? the friend assured her and told that she is in Bombay and there is nothing to worry about, but then it proved wrong.
The driver initially started with a small talk with her in a friendly manner and asked her where she is from.
later he said that since the roads in Mumbai are horrible she can sit in the front seat if she wants, but the woman denied the same.
After a while , the driver complained about low visibility through his back screen and told her he was going to pull over to clean it.

She was very disturbed by the incident, her close friend also stated that if she would not be able to run this case would be like the one happened in Delhi in 2014 where a uber driver raped a woman coming back from a late night dinner party.
