Sometimes bizarre things happen in our lives that we don’t have any explanation for, just like what happened to this techie from Bengaluru who was apparently charged ₹4,300 for a 15 kms auto ride. (He surely had the ride of his life.)
On reaching the destination, the auto driver asked the techie to pay ₹4300, based on the meter reading which clearly didn’t go down well with the man.
In an interview with the TOI the man said, “one man drove the auto rickshaw, while another on the passenger seat, who was actually the driver appeared to be drunk.” He further said that the driver asked his friend to drive to avoid police action.
Currently, the case is under investigation by the police and the hunt for the auto driver is on.
