What charges against the accused? Last September 17, the delivery boy came to deliver dinner to an engineering student’s house in Pune. The young woman complained that the 42-year-old man then asked her for water. When he goes to give water, the worker hugs him and kisses him. The young woman managed to free herself from the young man. Allegedly, after that the accused started harassing the girl on WhatsApp. Finally, the girl filed an FIR at the police station. The police arrested the young man after investigation. Controversy has naturally arisen in such incidents. It is known that the person got bail later.
Incidentally, this is not the first complaint against Zomato. And even then Zomato refused to accept the accused worker as an employee of their company. Questions have arisen around how the young man reached the young woman’s home to deliver food instead of being a Zomato employee. Demands are being raised, why aren’t more precautions taken for service.
