Uber rape case : Delhi court convicts driver Shiv Kumar Yadav

A Delhi Court on Tuesday convicted Uber cab driver Shiv Kumar Yadav for sexually assaulting a 25-year-old woman executive in his taxi last December.

The Court has framed charges against Yadav for offences of endangering the woman's life while raping her, abduction and criminal intimidation. It will hear arguments on the quantum of sentence on October 23.

According to police, the incident took place when the woman was heading back to her home in north Delhi's Inderlok area.

Yadav for his part had maintained his innocence and in his recorded testimony termed the charge against him as "false". He was arrested on December 7, 2014, from Mathura and is currently in judicial custody.
