Report: Uber fires Asia-Pacific head over handling of India rape probe

Uber Technologies Inc. has fired Eric Alexander, president of business for Asia-Pacific, following an internal investigation into sexism and sexual harassment at the ride-hailing giant, Recode reported June 7.

Alexander reportedly obtained medical records of a woman who had been raped by an Uber driver during a ride in India and shared the details with several Uber executives, including CEO Travis Kalanick and Senior Vice President Emil Michael.

Alexander's handling of the situation was among the 215 cases reported in the internal investigation, following which Uber has fired more than 20 employees.

Alexander had not been among those fired following that investigation, Uber told Recode June 6, when asked about his status. He was subsequently let go, according to the report.

Sources told Recode that Kalanick, Michael and Alexander had reportedly raised the possibility that Ola, Uber's rival in India, was behind the incident to sabotage the company.

Some Uber staffers who were told about the medical report were disturbed to hear the executives were considering the idea that the woman's story was untrue, based on their interpretation of the medical report, the Recode report said.
