Is eating food a crime in India that it can even take your job? This sad thing has happened to a Zomato’s delivery boy who caught on camera while eating a food that someone has ordered and after eating, he had packed it again.

The video went viral and has created a buzz on social media and the comments started coming over the video from the left and right directions and criticising the food application for such a thing.

In the viral video, it can be clearly seen that how a delivery boy is eating a food and then, pack it in such a way that the recipient couldn’t understand that the food has been eaten by someone.



However, as the video started doing the round, the company soon apologised on social media.
In its apology post, Zomato has said that ‘We take these kinds of reports extremely seriously and upon thorough investigation, we've found that the video was shot in Madurai. The person in the video happened to be a delivery partner on our fleet. We have spoken to him at length - and while we understand that this was a human error in judgment, we have taken him off our platform.’

Further, Zomato also added that they had sacked the man who did such a thing.

Well, it is a bit harsh punishment that has been given to the delivery boy because hunger is the call of nature which can’t control for long.

After this shocking news, Netizens also felt sorry for him and said that it’s totally wrong to punish him in such way.
