A Team-BHP member posted and narrated this horrific incident, which happened in Leh in which a tourist car convoy of around 15 cars was brutally attacked in Ladakh by Local Ladakh Taxi Mafia and left 3 innocent tourists injured.
9522-0

The convoy also had 2 self driven rented cars and attack may have happened to attack those rented vehicles but goons didn't stopped here and after brutally damaging the self driven rented cars, they also attacked private cars in the Convoy. Windshields were broken and local administration did not take any action. Below pics of a brand new Toyota Fortuner after the attack in Leh by Taxi Mafia





Taxi union is killing the tourism in Leh through which they earn their bread and butter.

Police had to escort the convoy to give them a safe passage.

Please share this post to all those who are going to Leh to beware and boycott the place till the situation improves there as we tourists are getting taken for granted from whom these goons earn their living. Those planning to take self rented cars like Zoomcar etc should not do so this season atleast.

Really sad to read this incident, all those who were planning to go to Leh this season will think twice before leaving.

shocking to read about it; Leh is first destination for almost every road-trip passionate.
In any other town, I have faced friendliness from taxi owners or pre-paid taxies or booth, say Goa, Shimla, Manali, Dharamshala, Udaipur, etc., but this is not helpful.
I prefer to coordinate with someone local, like local taxi or hotel manager to keep in touch, if required; but it seems this won't be sufficient anymore.
Hope someone can suggest some basic safety measures to be followed in road-trip

Actually the thing is when competition and greed for more comes in this is bound to happen. Situation is getting worse each year, Leh Ladakh is paradise for road trippers and people tend to take their own vehicles to enjoy the amazing route. Those who can't afford expensive SUVs take self rental cars to fulfill their desire but these taxi operators feel they are getting competition from these road trippers but actually Road trippers will never take a taxi to do a road trip, they would stop going to this place if more such incidents would happen in future and this would lead to decrease in revenues for hotel operators and other commercial activities, which are dependent on road trippers.

Local administration is equally to be blamed, they are actually not able to handle these situations, same thing I felt in Manali, where Local administration in Manali has put the limit on petrol and diesel vehicles going to Rohtang Pass in a day. Now this is being used to black marketing. A 500 Rs Himachal Roadways ticket to Rohtang Pass from Manali is getting blacked and is sold ny private travel and tourist operators at appx Rs. 800/- and also Taxi union or say Taxi Mafia is also taking advantage of this rule and they ask for out of the world prices. This is happening in Manali, this has started happening in Leh and dont know where the road tripper wanderer will go, a day is not long to be seen when a Bike rider will get attacked for bringing his own bike in Leh Ladakh

Are you serious, it is very shocking to hear this, Leh used to be one of the most calm places in India. Very sad news.

We can just hope situation improves over there in coming years and this can be done by some stringent rules by local administration in Leh
