Known for exhibiting unruly behaviour and creating ruckus in Bengaluru, Uganda nationals attacked a cab driver after he refused to take five members due to Covid-19 rules.

The cab arrived and four of the students boarded and when the driver was about to start, another one also tried to board.

Citing Covid rules, driver Sagar raised objections and canceled the trip and also demanded Rs 100 as cancellation charges.

Infuriated by this, the Uganda students who had come to celebrate their graduation ceremony, attacked the driver.

One of the women seen in the video holding a slipper reportedly had hit him. Due to commotion, police were called and the matter reached the police station.
