In an interview with The News Minute, the delivery man named Kamaraj, who has been suspended by way of the corporation after the complaint, said, “After I reached her door, I exceeded her the food, and I was waiting for her to pay me as she had opted for cash on delivery mode of payment. I additionally apologized since the delivery was delayed due to bad roads. But she was very rude from the outset. She requested me ‘Why are you late?’ I answered apologetically, as there were roadblocks due to ongoing civic works and there have been traffic jams as well. But she kept on insisting that the order must be delivered within 45-50 minutes. I am working on this job for more than two years and this is the first time that I have had to go via this variety of an ordeal.”

Anybody who sees her face will recognize that this wouldn’t be created by a punch. And I don’t wear any rings.”
