Police say the accused driver did not even have a driving licence issued by the Delhi Transport Authority
The Delhi government on Monday banned “all activities” of Uber after one of its drivers was arrested on charges of raping a woman.
An official statement said the Delhi government’s transport department has blacklisted the company.
Yesterday, the police had said they will take legal action against the US online taxi service for failing to run background checks on the cab driver.
The police on Sunday arrested the cab driver Shiv Kumar Yadav from Mathura in Uttar Pradesh. He will be brought before a New Delhi court today, Madhur Verma, deputy commissioner with the Delhi Police had said yesterday.
Yadav has allegedly told the police that he spent seven months in jail in a rape case which was filed against him in south Delhi’s Mehrauli area in 2011.
