Uber, Ola, others have to be regulated: Delhi government to HC


NEW DELHI: The AAP government today told the Delhi High Court that Uber, Ola, other aggregators of taxis or any operator, ought to be regulated in law to ensure security and safety of the users.

The submission was made before a bench of chief justice G Rohini and justice Jayant Nath, which is hearing Uber’s plea that Delhi government be restrained from interfering with its business.

The AAP government, however, said that Uber’s plea is “not maintainable as they have not approached this court with clean hands and are not entitled to any discretionary remedy for they are running their business illegally and are blatantly flouting the ban order dated January 1, 2015 passed by them and upheld by this court.”

The AAP government in its affidavit filed through advocate Prabhsahay Kaur also said that on December 5, 2014 a female passenger was raped by the driver of a car which was booked through the petitioner Uber platform.

 “The accused driver of the car has now been convicted by the trial court for rape. The said driver of Uber was known to be a habitual offender and was earlier accused for molestation and robbery.
