When the fuel ran out, a Rapido Rider was reportedly forced to push his car while his customer sat on the two-wheeler. An online video of this incident has been made public.
The Rapido Driver was forced to push his car to the closest gas bunk because the customer allegedly refused to get out of the car.
The strange event took place in Hyderabad. According to reports in the Telugu media, a man reserved a ride on Rapiod, but the two-wheeler ran out of petrol in the middle of the trip. The customer was then asked to walk to the closest gas station by the driver, but he refused and kept sitting on the bike.
The driver of the Rapido had no choice but to push his car to the closest gas bunk. Oneindia, however, is unable to confirm the veracity of the assertions.

The video has met with strong reactions from netizens who slammed the customer for failing to show empathy. “Request you to give an incentive to this rider and immediately ban this user from your service forever,” one user on social media said.
The second user said, “Nonsense customer no common sense to show basic humanity..The rider should kick him out.” The third user added, “This is what happens when your heart is in the place of brain and brain is in place of heart.. heartless people…”
Another user claimed, “Rapido and all other companies should simply BAN this guy, BTW also need to check if this guy has any walking problem.” However, one netizen asked people not to jump to conclusion. “Did someone speak to either customer or rider? We r so quick to get to conclusion. Same thing happened with me and the rider was insisting i keep seated. He didn’t listen even when I said i am fine to walk along. It’s a diff matter i paid him full and walked 500m without waiting,” the user added.
