A Delhi court has framed charges of rape, kidnapping and criminal intimidation against the Uber cab driver accused of raping a 25-yr-old woman in December.

The survivor, who got into the cab around 11 pm on Friday night to travel from Vasant Vihar in south Delhi to her residence in north Delhi, was allegedly raped by Shiv Kumar Yadav, 32, who took her to a desolate spot after noticing that she had fallen sleep.
