Seeing on the horrific incident I advise TFI'ans who are planning for the ride to be on utmost care. Last year I went to Leh-Ladakh on my bike. Luckily the weather god was in our favor and didn't witness any issues. Personally I felt people over there are nicest one could witness in India. But sadly due to some issues people over there are now facing issues with travelers opting for self driven vehicles. Recently my parents had been to same part of the country just few weeks before. Their taxi driver happen to elaborate the story further. The taxi men over there are creating so much ruckus that the travelers are indeed having nightmares. Adding much flavor to the story they got to witness one such incident in front of them. Where taxi guy pelting stones on white board vehicles & eventually beating the owner crazily. Such incidents have become common sightings over there as more & more people are visiting that place every year the part of there GDP lies alone in servicing the travelers. If such service itself is snatched from them then they sure are to create havoc & make the passerby life miserable. Kindly guys make it a safe journey. Wish you all a safe & happy journey!! Happy motoring..
