The salary cap for each franchise has been upped from Rs 66 crore, and will increase progressively over the next three years. However in the meeting it was discussed that teams could retain not more than than three Indian and two foreign players.

The incident took place around 10.30 pm on Sunday, in a deserted spot on the Ring Road in south east Bengaluru.

According to the woman, the vehicle had reached the intermediate Ring Road on the way to Koramangala when the driver stopped the auto by the roadside. The cab driver who is identified as Rajashekhar Reddy stopped the vehicle when he found a lonely spot on the Intermediate Ring Road on the way to Koramangala. When the police investigated, Reddy defended saying that he did not molest the woman and only tried to help her open the door which was child-locked. Resisting her advances, the victim tried to get out the vehicle. The woman, whose mobile phone battery had run out, could not alert anyone and was let go by the driver after she started banging on the windows and screamed. "I still didn't file a written complaint with the police yet", she added. The victim approached the police who warned the driver but she did not file a complaint. However, the woman mustered the courage and lodged a complaint against the driver. "We have zero tolerance for such incidents", an Ola spokesperson said in a statement to IANS.

Now is the high time the firm owners take stringent actions against the perpetrators since this issue has now become a cause of concern and safety of passengers.
