Uber case: HC stays pronouncement of judgment till March 4
The Delhi High Court on Wednesday stayed the pronouncement of judgment by the trial court on the alleged rape of a 25-year-old woman in December last year by a Uber taxi driver till March 4 while the High Court decides on the accused driver’s plea recall of prosecution witnesses.

Justice Sunita Gupta reserved the order on a plea by Shiv Kumar Yadav’s lawyer seeking to recall 28 prosecution witnesses who, according to him, were not properly examined by Yadav’s previous lawyer. During the course of the hearing, Yadav’s lawyer

DK Mishra had told the court that only 13 of these witnesses needed to be recalled. Lawyer Rajesh Mahajan, appearing for Delhi Police, opposed the plea, calling it a “mere dilatory tactic”.
