India’s leading online shopping website Flipkart had one of its delivery boy arrested fro stealing 12 iPhones which have a net worth of Rs. 5 Lakh.
According to a report by Indian Express, the delivery boy’s name is B Naveen and is 21 years old based in Chennai.
The report also says that Naveen used to make orders from fake addresses from the area in which he used to deliver and then replace the original products with duplicate ones and then return the products to the warehouse saying that the customer was not satisfied.
Naveen used to take the trouble of swapping the devices at his own house as the warehouse had CCTV cameras installed.
This delivery boy was caught after Flipkart running a secret operation to find out what was happening as it was unusual to have so many products returned from the same area. As a result, Flipkart came to know that the products which were returned were not the products which were sent.
Hence, the warehouse owner filed a complaint with the local police and had Naveen taken into judicial custody.
The delivery boy also accepted his crime and also added that he had to do that to clear some debt he made during his college days.
