Police wake up, tightens noose on taxis cabs
After the Uber rape case, Delhi Traffic Police seems to have woken up from its slumber and tightened the noose on taxis and cabs plying in the city, police said on Saturday.

Since December 7, the traffic police have imposed penalty on 3,851 drivers and impounded 527 cabs for violation of permit conditions. “Delhi Traffic Police also ensured that random checking on cabs with women passengers shall continue. In fact, on December 12, around 1,423 such cabs were stopped and checked,” said a senior official.

After the Uber incident, Delhi Traffic Police also verified 1,073 taxi stands in the city. “And this exercise  shall be continued in the future as well,” the senior official added.

On the night of December 5, a young financial analyst was allegedly raped by a cab driver in Delhi. The incident triggered a massive outrage in Delhi, after which the US-based Uber cab company, for which the accused driver worked, was banned by the transport department in Delhi.
