    A high court in India's capital New Delhi ruled on to keep a ban in place against the Indian branch of the US-based cab service provider Uber after two of Uber’s taxi drivers were accused of sexually harassing and assaulting female customers in 2014 and 2015.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A high court in India's capital New Delhi ruled on Wednesday to keep a ban in place against the Indian branch of the US-based cab service provider Uber, local media reported.

    According to India's Financial Express newspaper, the court ruling came after two of Uber’s taxi drivers were accused of sexually harassing and assaulting female customers in 2014 and 2015.

    The Californian transport company, which matches drivers and passengers through a phone application, pleaded for the court to overturn its ban on its taxi services in the nation’s capital, the paper said.

    The outlet said the court had previously rejected applications for taxi licenses from two similar operators, Ola and TaxiForSure.
