SC to hear plea on cab services
The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to examine a plea to regulate appbased cab services to make the companies accountable for offences committed by their drivers.
A Bench, led by Justice Madan B. Lokur, took notice of the fact that most of these companies are headquartered abroad.
“The issue of regulating public transport, including Internet-based taxi services, will be taken up on December 7,” the apex court said.
The Bench decided to take up the issue after its amicus curiae and senior advocate Indira Jaising pointed to incidents of sexual harassment faced by women passengers from taxi drivers.
