Shiv Kumar Yadav, the 32-year-old Uber cab driver, has been accused of raping a 27-year-old woman executive. Following the alleged rape, the Delhi government has banned the company from operating in the city. A case of cheating, under Section 420 of the IPC, has also been registered against Uber.
The court recorded the testimony of the accused in which he termed the charge against him as “false”.
Prosecution completed recording of its evidence but the defence made several attempts to delay proceedings.
