Zomato Food Delivery is back in news, this time for not a good reason though!
A twenty-seven-year-old woman who works as a delivery girl with the food delivery app was arrested by the Vashi (Navi Mumbai) Police on charges of abusing and robbing on-duty traffic constables.
- According to the police, the girl named Priyanka Mogre had parked her two-wheeler in a no-parking area in Sector 17 in Vashi
- As the traffic cops were penalising her, she started abusing them
- When she saw that they were recording her on their phones, she too pulled out her own phone
- The incident reportedly took place on August 8 at around 5 pm
The police officer said,
When some constables took a photo of her bike, she started yelling at them. The rant went on for about 11minutes. She even refused to come to the police station.
According to Mogre, she was seated on her bike when the cops wanted to challan her.
