The general manager of Uber taxis in Mumbai was allegedly slapped today by a member of a local outfit here on a day when Maharashtra government decided to ban web-based taxi services in the state.

KK Tiwari, union leader (auto-taxi wing) of Swabhiman Sanghatana, allegedly slapped Shailesh Sawlani, general manager of Uber in the Maharashtra capital, when he was coming out of the office of the Transport Commissioner in suburban Bandra here.

However, no formal police complaint has been lodged in this regard.

Swabhiman Sanghatana is led by Congress MLA Nitesh Rane. Following the Centre's advice on web-based taxi services in the wake of the alleged rape of a 27-year-old woman in an Uber cab in Delhi, the Maharashtra government has decided to ban such services in the state.

The alleged rape incident in the national capital had taken place on Friday night.

Following outrage over the incident, Delhi government had banned Uber and all web-based cab booking services which had not taken any regulatory approval from transport authorities.
