It is true that we are very excited to get our products delivered at our doorstep once we order them online but have your ever wondered how far can anyone go to punish the delivery boy for late delivery of his/ her product. In a spine chilling incident that has come to light from Delhi, a woman and her brother have allegedly stabbed a Flipkart delivery boy over 20 times and choked him with his shoelace for late delivery of a mobile phone worth Rs 11,000.
According to report by India Today, a 30-year-old woman named Kamaldeep residing in Nihal Vihar area of Delhi allegedly stabbed a Flipkart delivery boy named Keshav more than 20 times for delivering her mobile phone late. She also took help of her brother Jitender Singh in hitting Keshav and almost putting him to death. The two also robbed him of Rs 40,000.
The brother-sister duo then dumped the severly injured delivery boy near a drain in the closeby Chandan Vihar area. The police got a call on March 29 night informing them of the injured man. Upon reaching the spot, the police team took Keshav to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital. A senior police officer told The Hindu:
“The injured was identified as Keshav, a resident of Ambica Enclave in Nihal Vihar. He recorded his statement on March 24 and based on his statement, the accused were arrested. A CCTV footage also helped us crack the case.”
As per the victim’s statement to the police, he was unable to locate the address as he was new to the area. Later, when he reached the delivery address, the woman allegedly first screamed at him and then rushed to the kitchen to get a knife. When her brother heard the noise, he intervened. To him, the woman replied that he should either stay out of it or help her teach the delivery boy a lesson.
The two together stabbed the man more than 20 times and attempted to choke him with a shoelace. Then they looted Rs 40,000 cash from him and dumped him in the nearby drain.
Accused said that the victim has tried to misguide the police but the CCTV footage clearly showed his entry and also that his body was taken out of the building. Rs 40,000, a towel stained with blood, knife and shoe laces have been recovered by the police from the area of crime.

Don’t you think it is utterly inhumane of the brother-sister duo to attempt delivery boy’s murder just for a delayed delivery. Doesn’t it prove that humanity is dying? Share your views with us in the comments section!
