New Delhi


 A court here on Tuesday fixed September 21 to hear final arguments in a case relating to the alleged rape of a woman executive by an Uber cab driver.

Additional Sessions Judge Kaveri Baweja listed the matter for September 21 for hearing final arguments in the case.

The Supreme Court on Thursday 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. - IANS
