In a Twitter thread, a woman from Gurugram has narrated her ordeal of jumping out of an autorickshaw after the driver deliberately took a wrong turn towards an unfamiliar route and continued on it despite her protests. The woman, who describes herself as a communications specialist in her Twitter bio, has alleged that the driver attempted to abduct her.
She alleged that the autorickshaw driver did not respond when she objected to him taking a wrong turn. Instead, she said, he started “taking God’s name at reasonably high pitch”. The woman, identified as Nishtha, said she even hit the man eight to 10 times but he continued to ignore her. She further said she decided to jump out of the vehicle to escape and had to take an e-rickshaw to reach home.
The incident took place on December 19 in broad daylight at Gurugram’s Sector 22, which is seven minutes away from her residence. Nishtha said the area was a busy market and she took an autorickshaw from the stand to get to her house.
“Yesterday was one of the scariest days of my life as I think I was almost abducted/ kidnapped. I don’t know what it was, it’s still giving me chills. Arnd 12:30 pm, I took an auto from the auto stand of a busy market Sec 22 (Gurgaon) for my home which is like 7 mins away,” Nishtha tweeted.
