Man orders gold via Flipkart; Receives empty box

A man in Bengaluru ordered a 20gm gold coin online from Flipkart, and was allegedly delivered an empty box police said today.

The incident took place in Dec 2017 when Amit Garg, a private firm employee, placed an order for gold coin worth 61,000 and was aghast to find the parcel contained nothing.

Incidentally Amit opened the package in front of CCTV camera and rushed out to call the delivery boy who had left by then.

Garg initially wrote to Flipkart seeking assistance but after failed efforts, lodged a complaint with police two days back.

An IPC 420 case (cheating/fraud) has been registered against Flipkart and PVC logistics.

Police will now probe if the coin went missing or was never dispatched.
