Reporter threatened by Auto-Rickshaw driver in Delhi

On Thursday at around 6 pm, I was waiting for an auto-rickshaw at Badli Mor near Rohini with my sisters. After about ten minutes, one auto-rickshaw stopped. We wanted to go to Model Town. But the driver didn’t want to go there. But as it was getting dark and we were anxious to reach home, we told him, “You can’t say ‘no’. We can file a complaint against you.”

The driver changed tack. He demanded a large amount for the trip. We told him to go by the meter and charge 50% more. He simply refused. Once again we warned him – that we would complain to the police about his behavior and his arbitrary demands.

Suddenly the driver whipped out his cellphone, turned around, and clicked our picture. His gruff voice turned menacing: “Tu complaint to kar, mai batata hun (You just try filing a complaint, I’ll show you what I can do.)” An argument followed and I called the police control room at 100.

The voice at the other end gave me another number – 27854799 – and said that the area I was in came under the jurisdiction of the police who would attend to my call.
