By this time, there is a crowd of onlookers who are taking the video of the entire incident. This enrages the girl more. She allegedly tries to snatch one of the passerby’s phones. This is when the Swiggy delivery executive enters the scene.
At first, he tries to act as a peacemaker and intervenes in the bickering couple’s conversation. Reportedly, he asked the girl to not abuse. Hearing this, the girl gets annoyed even more and uses foul language against the delivery boy.
This leads to a heated exchange of words. The delivery boy loses his cool and starts beating her up. A passerby intervenes while trying to keep the delivery boy away from the girl. He is shown shoving, punching and slapping her.
As per reports, none of the two parties have filed a complaint with the police. Bhubneshwar DCP Umashankar Dash told India Today, “Since it was an incident of thrashing by both the parties, I have instructed the concerned PS Official to register a case against both of them.”
