A social media user recently shared a Facebook post relaying an unfortunate experience by her female friend who is a Grab driver.

In the post, it is revealed that the female Grab driver had picked up a male passenger in the Bangsar area. The passenger who claimed to be a Pakistani then proceeded to talk dirty to his driver, making her feel uneasy.

Upon reaching the destination, the Pakistani passenger refused to step down from the car and molested his driver. The female Grab driver immediately got down from her car, and it was only then did the passenger alight as well.

The situation unfortunately did not end there.

The Pakistani passenger continued to WhatsApp message his Grab driver and passed some lewd comments to her. The Grab driver later placed matters in the police’s hands by filing an official police report. The police officer explained the details to the Grab driver and her friend should they wish to take action on the case. Noting how the procedure is complicated and troublesome, the Grab driver decided to let it go.

The Grab driver later posted her police report and snapshot of the passenger’s picture in an Uber and Grab community group on Facebook. Members of the group were able to identify the passenger and his place of work. They managed to put two and two together by guessing that the passenger had worked in a restaurant in Bangsar due to his drop off location. The Pakistani passenger’s Facebook page also revealed his working place as well and it matched his WhatsApp display picture.

Through this, the female Grab driver tried to track the passenger down by going to his place of work. Unfortunately, the manager of the restaurant mentioned that they could not reach the perpetrator as his phone has been turned off.

The Grab driver’s friend has posted this incident on Facebook as a reminder to female Grab and Uber drivers to remain mindful of who they pick up as passengers. She urged, “Please be very careful when you drive a stranger in your car. The apps can only recognise and identify the passenger, but not their personality. Just posting this out to remind female drivers to be extra careful.
