An unemployed Man who robbed Ola driver was caught off guard
Chandpasha Shaikh, an Ola driver, was baffled when he got a booking on his cab from his brother-in-law, who is also an Ola driver.
He nevertheless went to pick up the passenger. When he met him, Shaikh realised it was an unknown person and suspected something was amiss. Once the person was inside the cab, Shaikh drove straight to Samata Nagar Police station and got him arrested.
It turns out that on June 16, Deepak Tiwari, the arrested man, had booked an Ola Cab from the Gateway of India. He was with three friends, whom he dropped off at Sion. When he reached Sion Circle, he asked the driver for Rs 2,000, saying he had some urgent work and had no cash and then while getting off asked for the driver's phone saying his own was dead. He then disappeared.
Farooq Shaikh (25),the Ola driver, Chandpasha's brother-in-law, waited for an hour, but
the passenger,Tiwari did not return. He finally filed a complaint at Sion Police station against Tiwari.As luck would have it, just two hours later, Chandpasha, got a call from the stolen phone by a 20 year old youth . And, once he sat inside the car, Chandpasha drove him straight to Samata Nagar Police station.
The Samata Nagar Police detained Tiwari and informed the Sion Police station, who took custody of him. It was later informed by the Senior Inspector Mrudula Lad that Tiwari was a resident of Diva and was unemployed .
