Government will take all necessary steps to bring to justice the driver of Uber cab service who had allegedly raped a woman passenger here last week, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday.

“The Government of India strongly condemns this dastardly act. It will be ensured that all necessary steps are taken to bring the offender to justice,” he said in a suo motu statement in the Lok Sabha.

Giving details of the incident that occurred on the night of December 5, he said the driver, who was absconding after the incident, was arrested yesterday from Mathura and was being produced before a Delhi court today.

“The vehicle used in the crime has been found and brought to Delhi where it will be subjected to thorough forensic examination,” Mr. Singh said.
