After two days, that Delivery Boy, Kamaraj, clarifies that, Hitesha Chandranee verbally abused him in starting and also hit him with a Slipper.

Refusing Ms Chandranee’s allegations, he said, “I handed her the food and I was expecting her to pay me…I also apologised since the delivery was delayed due to traffic and bad roads…”
The Delivery Boy said that, She refused to pay for the food. On Ms Chandranee’s request, Zomato support has cancelled the order and delivery boy was instructed to collect the food from Chandranee which she refused to give to the delivery boy. Instead of giving food back to the delivery boy, she started argument with him and also verbally abuses him in hindi. The Delivery Boy reportedly decided to leave the premises without collecting the food from her, but that is when, he claims, she began hitting and abusing him in Hindi very badly.
“At this point, when she was trying to push my hand away, she accidentally hit herself with her finger ring on the nose, which led to the bleeding. Anybody who sees her face, will understand that this wouldn’t be created by a punch. And I don’t wear any rings,” Mr Kamaraj told the statement to The News Minute website.
After 1 day of incident, the delivery boy, Kamraj was arrested and continually questioned for almost two hours and later released on a conditional bail. “The police did not disrespect me in any way. But now I have to spend ₹ 25,000 for legal expenses to prevent my arrest,” Kamaraj told The News Minute.
