The viral video showed that a taxi driver of some app-based ride-hailing was trying to harass a girl who suffered from a communication disability. The driver was a mentally sick person who tried to abuse a disabled girl.
Soon after this video went viral, Attorney General Sheikh Al-Mojeb issued an arrest warrant against the driver and also ordered the police to trace the driver and launch an investigation to find out the truth behind this video.
Police followed the orders of the Attorney general and arrested a 30-year-old driver of an app-based ride-hailing in Madina on Monday.
Husain Al-Qahtani, spokesman for Madina police said, “We followed up the case, identified the driver, traced and arrested him for taking the advantage of his passenger’s physical condition and abusing her.
The driver is a Saudi national in his 30s and he drives a private car registered with a ride-hailing service. He was working on his own personal account. Now he is under investigation.”
This video was filmed by the girl while the driver was trying to harass her. The driver, however, attempted to stop her from filming her and took out a knife to threaten her.
