Uber staffer sends Rs 30L drivers' money to friend's a/c

Police are hunting for an Uber staffer and his associate who allegedly defrauded the cab aggregator of Rs 30 lakh over one and a half years. The cab aggregator filed a criminal case against Arshad Basha, a partner support representative, and his accomplice Saif Ali Khan on Tuesday.

Basha, working at the firm's Parangipalya branch, reportedly deposited Rs 30 lakh to Khan's account. The money  was to be given to drivers as an incentive for referring other co-professionals.  

As per the Uber policy, anyone who introduces driver partners to the cab service is given an incentive paid directly to their account, the HSR Layout  police said. The company found that Basha sent money to Khan's account between February 1, 2016, and October 2017,  though the latter hadn't referred any drivers. Police have sought documents from the cab aggregator for further investigation.
