Nowadays, it's super easy to order stuff just by tapping your phone, thanks to the internet and delivery apps. But what if the delivery person isn't trustworthy? It can make things pretty messy and worrisome.
An Instagram reel, shared by Captain Monicaa Khanna (@flywithmonicaa), is gaining traction on the platform, highlighting the issues surrounding "Hyperlocal deliveries". The video, footage from a CCTV camera, displays the doorway of an apartment.
In the video, Moincaa explains the sequence of events, detailing the time and actions of the Blinkit delivery agent.
According to the text accompanying the reel, the Blinkit delivery agent arrived at the doorstep just before 8 pm. The footage captures him delivering the order and then entering the lift.
Shortly after, he reappears, visibly unzipping his jacket. As described by the user, he proceeds to conceal the shoes that were placed outside the house within his jacket.
The incident prompted Monicaa to swiftly file a complaint with Blinkit's grievance officer, who assured her that her address would remain confidential.
Despite this, the same delivery executive returned around 10 pm, holding a packet. Monicaa mentioned that he persistently rang the doorbell, but she refrained from opening the door due to concerns for her security.
This incident occurred on November 23, 2023, in Delhi.

In the video, which has amassed more than 3 million views, Monicaa elaborates on how it extends beyond a singular incident of the delivery person stealing her shoes. Instead, she emphasizes that it exposes broader issues associated with hyperlocal deliveries.
The comment section was replete with accounts of similar incidents shared by numerous women who had also experienced distressing encounters with delivery personnel. Here are a few examples:
Now, while many individuals (mostly men) appeared confused and dismissed the issue as insignificant, there were others who supported Monicaa's side of the story.
