New Delhi: The father of the woman executive, allegedly raped by a Uber cab driver, said on Tuesday that his daughter was still traumatised by the incident that happened with her on the night of December 5, 2014.
With tears in his eyes, the father said no one can understand what his daughter was going through. “She can't sleep at night, remains tensed.”
My daughter is being mentally harassed, the father said while speaking exclusively to Zee Media.
Not just my daughter's but my career is also at stake, revealed the father.
The Supreme Court here on Tuesday stayed the March 4 Delhi High Court order permitting the repeat cross-examination of the Delhi Uber rape case victim and other witnesses by accused Shiv Kumar Yadav.
The court also stayed the trial court proceedings in the case.
Challenging the high court order of March 4, the victim had contended that the conclusion of the high court that it was Yadav, who alone stood to suffer on account of delay, was totally wrong -- as it was the victim who suffers the most for having to go through a trial virtually from the beginning all over again.
According to the police, the woman executive was allegedly raped by 32-year-old Yadav on the night of December 5, 2014, in the cab she had hired to head back home in north Delhi's Inderlok area.
The accused driver took the woman to an isolated place where he raped her.
The court had on January 13 framed charges of rape, causing grievous bodily harm and endangering the life of a woman, kidnapping a woman, criminal intimidation and voluntarily causing hurt against Yadav under various sections of the Indian Penal Code.
