The alleged rape of a woman by a taxi driver in New Delhi, just days before the city marks the second anniversary of a notorious gangrape on a Delhi bus, has sparked debate over whether security for Indian women has improved.

A 27-year-old financial executive accused a taxi driver licensed by Uber, a popular US online cab service, of raping her late on Friday as she travelled home from a party.

The alleged attack was a chilling reminder of the fatal gangrape of a woman by six assailants aboard a moving bus on December 16, 2012. The crime sparked outrage around the world and calls for greater protections for women moving around India’s cities. More info
