The central government has ordered ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing to make “passenger safety its bottom line” after a woman was allegedly raped and killed by her driver over the weekend while using its carpooling service.

On Sunday morning, public security and transportation officials in both Beijing and Tianjin summoned Didi executives to a meeting and demanded a “thorough reform” of its Hitch carpooling service, the Ministry of Transport said in a statement (link in Chinese). The authorities said that Didi had “unshirkable responsibility” for the passenger’s death.
