A Delhi court found Uber rape accused Shiv Kumar Yadav guilty of rape and convicted him in its judgement on Tuesday.

Yadav had raped a woman passenger in Delhi on 5 December last year in a crime that led to national outrage and even brought in a temporary ban on radio cab services in the capital. 

Yadav was arrested from Mathura in Uttar Pradesh two days later and was found to have molested other women passengers in the past and was also accused of raping a woman in Mainpuri. 

The quantum of sentence for the Uber driver will be announced on Friday. 

The court convicted Yadav under all sections for which he had been charged, pronouncing him guilty for offences of endangering the woman's life while raping her, abducting and criminally intimidating her.

The 25-year-old rape survivor had sued Uber in the United States but later withdrew the civil suit. 

The finance executive who worked in Gurgaon had booked a cab on the night of 5 December, 2014, to go back to her house in Delhi's Inderlok area. 

However, the driver took her to a secluded space, intimidated her and raped her before dropping her off at her house.
