Uber sues Indian rival Ola for fake accounts, bookings - Bloomberg | Reuters

Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] is suing rival Indian ride-hailing service Ola, accusing it of creating fake accounts and making false bookings to interfere with its business, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.

Uber filed a lawsuit in the High Court of Delhi this month, claiming Ola had created more than 90,000 Uber accounts using fake phone numbers, through which it then made over 400,000 false bookings that were ultimately cancelled, Bloomberg said.

Ola denied the accusations in a statement to Bloomberg on Wednesday.

Uber and Ola were not immediately available for comment.
