Swiggy, a company valued at 1.3 billion dollars disregarded and by extension angered its huge customer base in the capital city. It all started when a group of Swiggy delivery boys vandalised a shop at Kalkaji and fled after thrashing a boy with steel rods and punches.
Kanav, a resident of Delhi was thrashed with iron rods and sticks by a group of Swiggy delivery boys at an eating joint called Delhi 19 at Kalkaji. The delivery boys vandalised the joint too over an argument on parking space with the owner of the food joint.
According to a Facebook post by one Monica Arora a friend of the victim, ” Over 40 SWIGGY delivery boys misbehaved by vandalising the eating joint “DILLI 19″ in Kalkaji late night on Sat, 14th July. Customers escaped through the back door of the kitchen, but Kanav was caught by the Swiggy boys assuming he’s the part of the restaurant team and severely beaten up by the steel rods and punches.”
