A man in Aurangabad, Maharashtra has filed a complaint against a leading online retailer for allegedly sending him a piece of brick instead of a mobile handset that he ordered. The man lodged a complaint on Tuesday against the e-commerce company at the Harsul police station. A police official said they registered a case under IPC Sections pertaining to cheating. Here's more on it.
The man already had paid Rs. 9,134 for the mobile
Gajanan Kharat, a resident of HUDCO area of Aurangabad, told the police that on October 9, he placed an order for a mobile phone on the shopping site and also paid Rs. 9,134 for it, Harsul police station inspector Manish Kalyankar said. Kharat subsequently received a message from the e-commerce company that the product would be delivered in a week's time.
My responsibility was only to deliver parcel, says delivery man
The man received a packet from the retailer last Sunday. However, when he opened it, he allegedly found a piece of brick inside it instead of the mobile handset, police inspector Kalyankar said. The man then called up the courier delivery man, who told him that their responsibility was only to deliver the parcel and not to see what was inside it, he said.
