Woman files complaint against food delivery agent, cops question her instead
She visited the Mahim police station around 6 pm and narrated her ordeal but the police filed an NC and not an FIR
A 25-year-old woman's character was questioned by the Mahim police when she went to register a complaint against a food delivery boy who barged into her flat in early hours of Sunday and fled with a Rs 100 note. The police have registered a non-cognizable offence instead of an FIR because of a 12-hour delay in approaching the police.
The woman was with a friend in her flat on Sunday when they ordered food at 3 am. The woman who hailed from Kolkata has lived in Mahim for three years. She told The Times of India, “I placed the order on Swiggy and got contact details of the delivery executive named Shanu Wadar. I called Wadar and asked him if he would get some cigarettes along with the food. He agreed and upon delivery, I paid him another Rs 150 for the favour. But he began to insist I pay him more and then barged into my house.
After she began to scream, the delivery boy fled but he stole Rs 100 which was lying on the table. She said, "My friend and I ran out and we found him waiting downstairs with at least four men. He threatened me with dire consequences."
She visited the Mahim police station around 6 pm and narrated her ordeal but the police filed an NC and not an FIR.
On Tuesday, the victim's colleague tweeted to Mumbai police handle and said, “When she went to the Mahim Police Station to file an FIR, a police officer asked her ridiculous questions and tried to embarrass her by asking why have you come this late here? He further asked her questions like do your parents know you drink alcohol? Instead of questioning the delivery boy, the cop was busy questioning my friend as if she was the culprit. Shockingly the cops allowed the delivery boy to go without taking any action."
