New Delhi: The Uber rape survivor, who was allegedly raped by the cab driver, has  hired a prominent New York lawyer to sue the the app-based transportation network company in US court.

The Delhi woman has retained laywer David Wigdor, who is well known for getting high-figure settlements for his clients.

Widgor also represented Nafissatou Diallo, the maid who accused former International Monetary Fund Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault.

The 27- year old Uber victim was allegedly raped in December in Delhi.

The accused, Shiv Kumar Yadav has been identified by the victim yesterday and is under trail by a fast track court in Delhi.

While the case re-ignited the question of women's safety in the capital, the Delhi government banned Uber cabs in the city after the incident.

The public was outraged after it was revealed that the accused was out on bail in another sexual assault case.

Uber has accepted that the company did not check the background of drivers in India before hiring them.
