China says cracking down on transport sector after Didi murder

China says cracking down on transport sector after Didi murderChina will crack down on dishonest and illegal conduct in the transportation sector, a government agency said on Monday, two days after police said a Didi Chuxing passenger was raped and murdered by her driver after which the firm halted its carpool service. The killing of the 20-year-old passenger in the eastern city of Wenzhou is the second such incident since May, fuelling outrage on social media and denting the image of Didi, which is the world’s largest ride-hailing firm by number of rides and is expanding globally. The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said various government departments will push to improve overall governance of operators in the transport sector.
