Hyderabad: A working professional Mili Srivastava is fuming. It has been 48 hours since she has tried all means to reach people at Flipkart to track down the delivery boy who allegedly molested her domestic help. After trying everything and even going vocal on social media to get the firm to respond, she, on Monday, decided to go to the Banjara Hills police station.
Ms Srivastava facebook post reads,
“Another incident of molestation and violation of a woman's modesty goes unnoticed. My maid was molested by a #flipkart delivery boy on Saturday. 48 hrs since, despite all the calls and requests to the company no response, let alone action against the boy who came to my house to deliver the order. When will we have a safe India for women???? As we look for the answers as a nation, one will make sure this is not repeated and the #flipkart stands up to not only selling products but owning up to the incident. We are not mere customers buying your products but respectable human being who deserve to be treated with respect.”
After filing the police complaint at Banjara Hills, Ms Srivastava spoke to Deccan Chronicle. “I will fight for my girl and she will get justice.” This is Ms Srivastava’s driving force. “I have so far have failed to reach anyone at Flipkart, except for the call centre executives, who give me the same protocol response ‘sorry for the inconvenience caused’. It is honestly appalling that the company has not responded,” says Ms Srivastava.
The incident took place when Mili was not at home and the accused came over to make a delivery. “It was cash-on-delivery. My help had just gone in to pick up the cash from the table, when the delivery boy attacked her and tried to force himself on her.” Shockingly, the accused even called back and threatened the help, asking her to keep mum. Now, Ms Srivastava believes that the only way is to let the police handle it.
Murali Krishna, SHO at Banjara Hills said, “The incident apparently occurred on September 13. They have filed a complaint and we are investigating. We have gotten in touch with Flipkart. They said they would send someone to the station.”
