Uber has been banned in the Indian capital of New Delhi after a driver from the popular ride-sharing service allegedly raped a female passenger.
The Delhi region's Transport Department banned the service Monday — the same day the driver accused of rape appeared in court.
He is accused of raping a 26-year-old woman who hired an Uber car on Friday night. After falling asleep on the ride, she allegedly woke up to find the car was parked in a secluded place where she says the driver then raped her.
