NEW DELHI: The Asia-Pacific head of US-based cab service Uber will be questioned by Delhi Police for the second consecutive day today in connection with the rape of a 27-year-old finance executive by the company's driver.    

Eric Alexander, the Uber Asia-Pacific head, had joined the investigation yesterday and had met senior police officials of north district at Civil Lines.     

He was issued a notice by police under section 91 CrPC to provide certain documents of the company.            

"We have asked him to submit documents under eight pointers which include details of all the taxis amid its drivers working with them and how they checked their antecedents and the details of the directors of the company," said a senior police official.           

Alexander, along with other senior Uber executives, also visited the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) office yesterday after being summoned by it.   

Delhi Police, which has already filed an FIR against Uber charging it with cheating its customers and defying government orders, has been questioning senior Uber officials for the last three days.            

The company was banned from operating in the city by Delhi government on Monday.

Shiv Kumar Yadav, who was driving the uber cab, had allegedly raped the woman on Friday night when the victim, who works for a finance company in Gurgaon, was headed back to her home in north Delhi's Inderlok area.
