Indian police are searching for a taxi driver from the international cab-booking service Uber for allegedly raping a young woman in the capital, Delhi.

Investigators said the woman was returning from a dinner engagement on Friday and used Uber’s mobile app to hail a car to drive her home.

She dozed off during the drive, and when she woke up the car was parked in a secluded place and the driver threatened and then raped her, the Press Trust of India reported.

The taxi was later found abandoned. Uber said it had suspended the driver’s account and was working with police.
