“The FIR was registered under IPC 295 A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion) and the matter is being investigated,” said Additional DCP (East) Syed Abbas Ali on the complaint lodged by Rakesh Kumar Shastri.
Shastri had, through a food delivery app, ordered dry chilli paneer from the restaurant in Chander Nagar area, but received chilli chicken instead.
“When we began to eat, my wife said it tasted strange. I checked the box and found that the restaurant had sent us chilli chicken instead of chili paneer,” he said in his complaint, adding that after the revelation, his wife started vomiting.
“Due to our religion, our entire family is hurt,” said Shastri, claiming he is president of the Balaji Temple Trust.
He alleged further that the restaurant packed the order without checking and the delivery boy did not take care either.
The ADCP added that the delivery boy and restaurant owner had been named and a thorough probe would be conducted into the case.
