LUMS student 'robbed by armed Uber driver' in Lahore
The woman says the driver "asked me to lend my mobile phone for an emergency call but threatened me with his gun when I asked to return it".
"In a state of utter confusion, I started calling the people outside and jumped from the car and suffered several injuries on my body," she wrote in a post on Instagram.
"I called up my dad who pulled strings in several places which led to an extremely efficient and thorough investigation of the entire incident," she added.
Momina asserted that the rides on taxi services like Uber and Careem are not safe and one must not take a journey alone as it was not only theft attempt but kidnapping.
The young girl asked the citizens to "stand together as one and try to defeat these evil people who have crept into our society".
People took to Twitter to express their rage over the horrific incident the young student faced, soon after her story was shared by her sister.
Very sad and frightening incident @Uber . We shud raise voice urging @Uber to be careful in enlisting drivers. All kudos to Momina Ashraf to have handeled the situation bravely. @Ashrafmalkham https://t.co/3Cghkss015— Khawar Azhar (@Khawar69) April 22, 2018
