Final arguments in Uber rape case from September 24

New Delhi, Sep 21 (IANS) A court here on Monday fixed September 24 to hear final arguments in the case of rape of a woman executive by an Uber cab driver.

Additional Sessions Judge Kaveri Baweja listed the matter for September 24 for hearing final arguments in the case, as it did not receive the case file and other records from the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court has set aside the Delhi High Court order permitting the recall and re-examination of 13 witnesses including the victim in the Uber cab rape case.

According to police, the woman executive was allegedly raped by 32-year-old Shiv Kumar Yadav on the night of December 5, 2014, in the cab she hired to head back home in north Delhi’s Inderlok area. The accused drove the woman to an isolated place and allegedly raped her.

The court had on January 13 framed charges of rape, causing grievous bodily harm and endangering the life of a woman, besides other, against Yadav under various sections of the Indian Penal Code.
