The Indian capital on Monday banned taxi-booking service Uber after a woman was allegedly raped by one of its drivers.
Transport official Satish Mathur made the announcement as the 32-year-old suspect appeared in a New Delhi court.
Police say they expect the court to formally charge Shiv Kumar Yadav with raping the finance company employee. He was hired to ferry her home from a dinner engagement on Friday night.
The CEO of San Francisco-based Uber, Travis Kalanick, said the company would do "everything to bring the perpetrator to justice and to support the victim and her family in her recovery."
