Earlier, Chandranee had posted a video clip on social media, alleging that she was hit by a Zomato delivery executive on 9 March following an argument over delayed food delivery.

In the four-minute video clip posted on Instagram and Twitter, Chandranee could be seen with a bloody gash on her nose, claiming that the delivery executive had attacked her after she confronted him over the delay in the delivery of her order.

She said, when the delivery executive, whom she identified as Kamaraj, came to her flat, she asked him to wait as she was speaking to a customer care representative, which is when she says he started abusing her.

“The Zomato delivery guy came and he was so rude. I don’t usually open the door because of Shushi (her pet dog). I opened the door a little and through the small slit, I asked him to wait because I was conversing with Zomato’s customer support,” Chandranee said.

“I gave him a choice, saying I do not need the order so you can take it. But he refused to take the order back and he started screaming at me, saying ‘Am I a slave or what? You are asking me to wait here’,” she alleged.

Chandranee said that she tried to shut the door but he pushed it back, took her order from the table and punched her on the face before running away.

Alleging that she has suffered a nasal bone fracture, Chandranee said, “I was given high power antibiotics and painkillers because of which I am able to talk. My nose bleeds as soon as I start talking.”

“Hey Hitesha, thank you for speaking to us, we can assure you this is not the experience our delivery stands for. Our local representative shall be in touch with you shortly to help you with the investigation along with assistance on the medical care required. We can’t emphasise how sorry we are, rest assured we’ll take necessary actions to prevent such incidents from happening in the future,” Zomato had tweeted in response to her tweet.
