BENGALURU: A software engineer who ordered food on Zomato app and cancelled it citing delay was left with a broken nose after the delivery boy allegedly punched her on Tuesday.
Electronic City police on Wednesday arrested food delivery executive Kamraj, 28, a resident of Channakeshavanagar II Stage and from Tamil Nadu. He was with Zomato for three years.
Hitesha Chandranee, who is from Maharashtra and works with an IT major in the city, said she has been shattered by the incident but is determined to ensure such incidents do not recur.
Hitesha narrated the ordeal on Instagram, and the post went viral. Police picked up the executive on Wednesday morning and announced his arrest after she identified him in the evening.
Delivery boy barged into house, hit me: Woman
I was working from home and ordered food by 3.30pm. It was to reach me by 4.30pm. But there was considerable delay. Asking the delivery boy to wait, I spoke to a customer-care executive. I was telling the executive to make the order free or I’ll cancel it. Then I decided to cancel it and requested the guy to take it back,” Hitesha told TOI.
“The guy was rude and shouted at me, asking if he was my slave. ‘You made me wait for so long,’ he said, forcefully entered my house, placed the order on table, punched me in the face and fled. No one came to my help. People living around me don’t care so much for others,” she narrated.
Hitesha reached Electronics City police station with a cut on her still-bleeding nose. Police told her to go to a hospital first and took details of the suspect.
“At the hospital, an X-ray revealed my nose bone was broken. Doctors said an operation has to be done,” she said, adding the incident has left her parents in Maharashtra worried.
“We have arrested the accused under IPC sections on charges of acting with criminal intimidation and voluntarily causing grievous hurt. We have taken him into custody for questioning,” police said.
