NEW DELHI: In what could be seen as a retaliatory step, a taxi driver was allegedly beaten by African nationals in the national capital.

The incident took place at around 4 a.m. today when Nuruddin, an Ola cab driver, was thrashed by six people, including two women of African origin, after he refused to carry more than four passengers in his vehicle.

As per the driver, the taxi No DL1YE5087 was booked through Ola to go from Rajpur to Dwarka. The driver, who sustained injuries on his face in the altercation, is presently being treated at the AIIMS Trauma Centre.
