Uber restarts services in Delhi

  • Uber, the internet based taxi company, has restarted services in the Indian capital Delhi after authorities had banned it last month over allegations that a firm driver raped a 26-year-old passenger.

    In a statement, Uber said it is improving safety measures by bringing in features like an "in-app emergency button," according to media reports.

    Shiv Kumar Yadav, the accused driver, is facing a trial on charges of rape and kidnapping. According to the complaint, he drove the woman to an isolated area and raped her.

    After the incident, the firm apologized and admitted that the company should implement strict security checks.
