The woman, a software professional, had booked an 'Ola Share' cab to Lingampally railway station on Tuesday. After the two other passengers got off, the driver, K Shivakumar (22), allegedly started staring at the woman.

 

He allegedly forced her to disclose her phone number and misbehaved with her, an official at the Rachakonda Police Commissionerate said.
