Pathao given legal notice over fare

A legal notice has been served to online ride-sharing service Pathao on charges of irregularities. Supreme Court Lawyer Tanjim Al Islam on behalf of Afzal Hossain, a resident of West Sheurapara of the city, sent the notice to Pathao Limited, Pathao chief executive officer and chief technology officer on Wednesday, reports UNB.

According to the notice, when Afzal Hossain wanted to know the fare from Bangla Motor to Sheorapara the Pathao app showed it Tk105. But when he reached his destination the driver of the ride-sharing service demanded Tk173 from him and he had to pay.

If the company fails to respond, legal action will be taken against it, said the notice.
