Driver Shawkat Ali became frustrated due to frequent cases filed against him by traffic police.

His motorcycle started burning right before the pedestrians. Some of the onlookers videoed the incident and spread to social media.

The six-point demand includes setting a 10 per cent commission on all sorts of rides, they also demanded an end to all sorts of police harassment on the way.

The spokepersons in the human chain alleged that ride sharing companies have been cut commission from the drivers on different issues.
