An Uber driver has been sentenced to life in prison for raping a passenger in his vehicle in New Delhi last year.

The judge had earlier found the driver, Shiv Kumar Yadav, guilty of rape, criminal intimidation, kidnapping and endangering the woman’s life.

The passenger, who works for a private company, had hired the cab for a ride home last December

The rape case was a blow to Uber, which has attracted global popularity and controversy with a service that lets passengers summon cars through an app in more than 250 cities around the world.

The New Delhi government banned app-based taxi companies after the rape.

Uber lost its licence to operate in the Indian capital, but it was restored in July.
