Mangaluru: Eight people were injured in a clash between drivers of cab aggregators and those belonging to the airport taxi union near the Mangaluru International Airport (MIA), Karnataka, on Wednesday, airport police said. The clash was over Ola and Uber taxi drivers picking up passengers from the airport, which was not allowed so far. However, the airport authority had recently initiated a move to allow cab drivers inside the airport. The clash occurred when a driver of a cab aggregator tried to pick up a passenger from the airport. Airport taxi drivers objected to it and assaulted him. Eight people belonging to both the groups were injured, police said adding a case had been registered. MIA director V V Rao said the airport authority had taken a decision to allow taxis of cab aggregators also into the airport, but the process was yet to be finalised.
