Support The Family of Uber Driver-Partner in Delhi

Why am I fundraising?

Kuldeep Thakur, 51, was a professional taxi driver in the capital city of India. He signed up to drive on Uber about two months back to provide for his family. A high performing partner with a rating of 4.67, some of his previous feedback included positive notes like: 'Excellent service’, 'Great driver' and 'Good experience’.

When a routine cab ride chat cost a life

On April 6, 2016, Kuldeep started his day like any other day. Two teenagers had booked the cab around 4pm on to go to Hiran Kudna in west Delhi. On the way, they started making fun of the native place of Kuldeep, who hailed from Mandi in Himachal Pradesh. Thakur retaliated with some more jokes on the teenagers, who then shot him dead. End result - a family losing its breadwinner to a senseless, mindless crime.

Kuldeep, a native of Himachal Pradesh, lived in New Delhi with his wife and three children. He was the sole breadwinner of the family and his eldest daughter marriage is on the cards, Kuldeep’s nephew Jograj said. He said, Kuldeep had worked as driver for years and purchased his own car earlier this year. His family left for Himachal Pradesh for the last rites.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

Kuldeep’s family is burdened by a car loan of Rs 5.6 lakhs. Until the car is released, there is no alternative source of income for the family. One small contribution from you can help this family during a difficult time. 

Any funds raised will be used to settle the car loan and towards the education of his children. All contributions will go directly towards Kuldeep’s family ensuring a secure future. Your little contribution can help his family during this difficult time.

Dear Supporters,

Meena Devi, Kuldeep Thakur's wife and Monika (his daughter) will be travelling to Delhi next week to get started on the legal formalities. Bank needs original documents of RC book and license. Once the police officials hand it over to the family, the loan settlements proceedings will start. We will keep you posted on the proceedings in the coming weeks.

Thank you
