Gusain told BuzzFeed that she was on the phone when she noticed the driver's phone facing her and his front camera being on.

"It was during the daytime, and I was on my way to meet a friend. I was talking on the phone, and was sitting in the middle of the back seat, when I noticed he was staring at me through the rear view mirror and kept changing his position," she added.

Before handing her the phone, the driver allegedly said that he wasn't filming her but was looking at videos that his daughter had sent him.

After realising that he had been caught, Gusain told BuzzFeed that the driver said sorry and tried to touch her feet. Asking her not to report him. "I told him to drive to a safe area and stand outside the car. I then waited till the cops came," she added."She also explained that the cops weren't really helpful, but that their hands were tied because according to the law, the driver would be released on bail. She then preceded to write on Ola's wall and urged them to take action immediately.
