Indian Woman Sues Uber in the U.S. Over Alleged New Delhi Taxi Rape

An Indian woman who says she was raped by an Uber driver while she was traveling in his cab in December is suing the San Francisco-based online firm in a U.S. federal court in California, claiming it failed to put in place basic safety procedures while running its car service in India.

In her lawsuit, filed on Thursday, the New Delhi-based woman called the app-based service the “modern day equivalent of electronic hitchhiking.” The unidentified plaintiff also calls for Uber to overhaul its safety practices, and seeks unspecified damages in the case, according to Reuters.
