Speedy Justice through the Fast Track Courts - Uber Driver Case


The conviction of a driver for raping a woman in a car booked through the Uber Technologies Inc. app less than a year after the attack is being described by those involved in the case as unprecedented for the speed at which it delivered justice for the victim of a sexual assault in India.

The “swiftness with which the trial was conducted is unprecedented,” said Madhur Verma, Delhi police officer in charge of the investigation. Judgment in a rape case typically takes three to four years in India. This one took less than nine months.

Lawyers and police officers involved in the case say it will be remembered as a “classic example” of how to conclude rape trials efficiently.
