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.
