Delhi bans Uber taxi’s after rape


The Delhi government banned “all activities” by Uber taxi company after one of its drivers was arrested on charges of raping a woman.

An official statement said the Delhi government’s transport department had also blacklisted the company from providing any transport service in the national capital in future.

Scores of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members staged a protest outside Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s residence here Monday morning over inaction against the cab company Uber, whose driver was arrested for raping a 25-year-old analyst.

AAP members gathered outside the home minister’s residence around 7.50 a.m. and raised slogans against the government and Delhi Police for not taking proper action against the cab company.

“At least 100 protestors have been detained for protesting outside the home minister’s residence and have been taken to the police station,” DCP Vijay Singh said.

An AAP party member said that the protest was led by AAP activist Aatishi Marlena.
