.@Uber: Stop the double standards. Mandate a 7 year background check for all Uber drivers in India like in the US

A 25 year old woman was raped by one of your drivers. This driver was a repeat offender and had spent seven months in Tihar jail in a sexual assault case. This is outrageous!
If your company had run a background check and got police verification done, this crime could’ve been avoided. What's worse, you have a three step background check process in the US but not in India. These are double standards.
Uber has a strong policy on background checks in the US. On your website you have boldly explained this policy:
“All Uber ridesharing and livery partners must go through a rigorous background check that leads the industry. The three-step screening we’ve developed across the United States, which includes county, federal and multi-state checks, has set a new standard. These checks go back 7 years. We apply this comprehensive and new industry standard consistently across all Uber products, including uberX.”
Why do you have these double standards then? Why aren’t the Indian Uber drivers subjected to the same process of background checks?
I am calling on all fellow Indians to sign my petition so that we can create public pressure and let Uber know that we will not tolerate their double standards. Uber, your image is on the line and you must take the safety of your Indian customers seriously.
Sign my petition and share it with your friends.
Uber, you must make a public statement and mandate a 7 year background check for all Uber drivers in India.
