NRI says she complained to Uber about accused earlier

A U.S.-based NRI said here on Monday that she had complained to Uber about Shiv Kumar Yadav, the cab driver accused of raping a 26-year-old MNC worker last Friday, and had received an apology from the company about his behaviour.

“I took a cab with Shiv Kumar Yadav in Delhi on Nov 26th. Scares me beyond belief,” Nidhi Shah tweeted. “I had reported Shiv Kumar Yadav to @Uber on Nov 26th. They said via email they would check on him. Not soon enough.”

“I was coming from Chandni Chowk and the driver started staring at me and giving me lecherous glances. He kept smiling at me and looking at me using the rear-view mirror. The situation became so bad that I had to hide behind the seat to avoid his stares,” Ms. Shah told a television channel.
