Despite the strict laws for women safety in the nation, India is still a very unsafe place for women. There have been innumerable incidents where women were harassed and raped by taxi drivers in various cities across the country.
Recently, actress Upasana Singh who played the role of Kapil’s bua in his hit comedy show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ had an unfortunate incident with a certain taxi driver in Chandigarh. The incident took place in Zirakpur, around 10 at night, when Singh was returning back to her hotel.
According to the complaint filed by the actress, the taxi driver, identified as Vivek, took her to a secluded area while she was returning back to her hotel in the capital city. Upasana got suspicious of the driver and the deserted way and called the police. The police identified the location as Ring Road Zirakpur and in no time, a PCR van reached the spot. Cops took custody of the driver and took Singh to her hotel.
On Sunday, when the police interrogated the driver, he denied the allegations but on Monday, he accepted his intention and issued a written apology to the actress. Since then, Singh has taken back her report and has gone back to her home in Mumbai.
Upasana Singh is originally from Hoshiarpur in Punjab and has been acting in various Punjabi and Hindi movies and shows for a long time. She was in Punjab, when the incident took place, shooting for her new movie ‘Landran’ and had gone to meet her relatives in the city.
