The ride-sharing app Uber has put the brakes on its rickshaw-hailing service in Delhi after problems prevented a wider rollout. This follows the conviction last month of an Uber driver charged with raping a woman he picked up. Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson gets the latest from the BBC’s Anu Anand in the Indian capital.

Note: This BBC interview can be heard in the Here & Now podcast or with the WBUR app.
