Uber dragged Ola to Delhi high court complaining that Ola’s employees have created over 9o,ooo false rider accounts on Uber’s app by giving fake names, email IDs and phone numbers.

Ola has denied the allegations in court, terming it as ‘frivolous and false’. The development comes in the wake of the heightened rivalry between the two cab aggregators with Uber’s President of Business in Asia Eric Alexander even claiming last week to beat Ola in the next 30 days.

Auto aggregator, Jugnoo too made a similar claim against Ola.

Recently, media went berserk over a (false) news of Uber acquiring Ola, which Ola denied.

Everything is fair in love and war?

Interestingly, Uber in 2014 was accused by US-based ridesharing service Lyft of ordering and cancelling about 5,560 rides on its platform cutting into profits and driver availability.
