A Delhi-based woman who has earlier filed a case against an Uber cab driver for allegedly raping her in December last year has voluntarily ended her lawsuit against the app-based taxi service, according to a US court filing.
The woman, who works in a Gurgaon finance company, had accused the driver of raping and beating her. The driver was arrested within a week of the complaint and was made to appear before the Delhi high court, where the hearing is still on.

Uber couldn’t help police track down the driver, who had previously been accused of rape and sexual assaults, according to the complaint. The driver was arrested while he was on the verge of fleeing to Nepal, according to the complaint.
The court filing did not disclose any details on how the case was settled, and representatives for Uber and the woman declined to comment.

In the lawsuit, the woman, who resides in Delhi and was not named, called Uber the "modern day equivalent of electronic hitchhiking."
"Buyer beware - we all know how those horror movies end," the lawsuit stated.
Earlier this year, both sides had agreed to participate in private mediation to try to resolve the lawsuit, according to court filings.
The case in US District Court, Northern District of California is Doe vs. Uber Technologies Inc, 15-424.
