Zomato assault case: FIR against woman who accused delivery man of punching her
Bengaluru-based make-up artist Hitesha Chandranee has been booked for wrongful restraint, criminal intimidation, assault and intentional insult.
The Bengaluru Zomato case took a new turn on Monday when an FIR was filed against the city-based woman make-up artist who had accused a Zomato delivery executive of assault.
The FIR filed by the Electronic City police is based on the complaint filed by delivery executive Kamaraj.
In his complaint, Kamraj accused Hitesha Chandranee of abusing him and repeatedly attacking him with her sandal after her food order was delayed on March 9.
Hitesha has been booked for wrongful restraint, criminal intimidation, assault and intentional insult.
The first FIR in the case was filed by Hitesha. She alleged that Kamaraj had abused and punched her on the nose when she refused to pay the bill after her order arrived 59 minutes late.
After the assault, the make-up artist had posted an Instagram video showing her bleeding nose. The video went viral, Zomato suspended Kamaraj pending investigation and police arrested the food delivery executive.
Days later, after his release on bail, Kamaraj issued a video appeal. Kamaraj stated that he had been delivering food for Zomato for 26 months and that he had been rated very highly by the customers.
