Meanwhile, the driver has been removed from the app pending investigation. An Uber spokesperson said, "What’s been detailed has no place on our platform. We have removed the individual’s access to the app pending a full investigation."
However, after the tweet was shared, mixed reactions were reported on the social media. Some social media users even state that these days fake complaints are also being made to gain the limelight.

What is the proof ? You may be rude to this hard working driver. Indians are usually bad to the people who give service to them. Uber do ask for proof because Indians are mostly liars
