  • Delhi woman who sued Uber over rape accusation ends U.S. lawsuit

    By Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A woman who sued Uber after accusing one of its drivers of raping her in India has voluntarily ended her lawsuit against the company, according to a court filing on Tuesday. The passenger, who reported being raped and beaten after hailing a ride with the Uber driver in Delhi last year, sued the online car service in a U.S. federal court in January, claiming the company failed to maintain basic safety procedures. Uber's Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick at the time called the incident "horrific" and pledged to help "bring this perpetrator to justice." However, Uber also argued in court filings that the woman sued the wrong corporate entity as the driver had a contract with Uber B.V., a Netherlands-based entity with no U.S. operations.

  • Monsoon may start withdrawing from North-West India from Tuesday

    With the four-month-long monsoon entering the last month of September on Tuesday, the rain deficit for the country as a whole is likely to grow beyond the 12 per cent forecast by the India Met Department. Model analyses suggest that the monsoon may start to withdraw from extreme northwest (Rajasthan) on Tuesday to signal the start of the month-long process. The withdrawal takes place in an elaborate swipe of the air in the Northeast-East-Southeast-South-Southwest (clock-wise) direction when monsoonal rain evaporates from the surface covered. By the second week of September, it would cover North and North-West India and parts of adjoining Central India, says an assessment of the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology.
