Police in New Delhi Enforce Ban Against Uber

A running battle between authorities in the Indian capital and Uber Technologies Inc. and other app-based ride-hailing services flared, as police stepped up efforts to enforce a ban on the companies’ operations by impounding cars and ticketing drivers. The latest crackdown -- in a country that is one of Uber’s most important markets outside the U.S. -- followed the rejection by Delhi transport officials of radio-taxi license applications by Uber and local rival ANI Technologies Pvt. Ltd.’s Ola and TaxiForSure units.
