A surveillance video caught a Zomato delivery man opening the ordered food of the customer then gobbling it down. Unbeknownst to him, all his hungry-deeds were being recorded right under his nose. The video shows a man in a Zomato shirt eating the food parcel then keeping the box back in the package. And he doesn't stop there, he goes for the other package too. He is then seen adjusting the sealing of a smaller packet after which he prepares to leave.
