Hitesha Chandranee accused Zomato’s delivery executive Kamaraj of assaulting her. She had shared graphic images of her nose bleeding. The delivery agent involved in the alleged incident was immediately suspended. Speaking to news agency ANI, Kamaraj had alleged that Hitesha had refused to pay after accepting the order since he was late for the delivery. She had not only abused him but also hit him with a slipper. While safeguarding himself his left hand touched her right hand and the ring which she worn hit her nose and it started bleeding.
