Soon around 15 boys gathered, all trying to hurt the driver. This is when she decided to step out of the car and intervene.
However, all her requests fell at deaf ears as the boys kept assaulting the driver. Finding no other way to stop them, the model ran up to a near police station, but the cops there refused to help her on the pretext of the incident taking place under some the jurisdiction of some other police station.
Though after much requests, the cops finally came with her and rescued the cab driver. Believing everything was over, Ushoshi requested the cab driver to drop her. However to her utter surprise, Ushoshi after a while realised that she was still being followed by those same boys. The boys once again attacked and tried to snatch away her phone which contained a video clip of the earlier altercation.
This time Ushoshi broke down and starting shouting which made locals of the area to come out. She also called her father and sister who lived in a nearby locality. Finally police arrived and the nightmare ended
