The use of food delivery apps has boomed in many parts of the country. The backbone of this service is undoubtedly the vast network of delivery agents.

In the Facebook video, we see a Zomato delivery agent seated on a bike, apparently waiting for a signal to turn green. As he waits, he reaches behind into the insulated bag meant to keep the food orders warm. He removes a small food item - something that looks like fries or chips - and proceeds to munch on it. As the traffic begins to move, the video stops. The caption read, "For all those who order from Zomato/Swiggy." Watch the full clip below:

The video has received a lot of attention online. In the comments, opinions seem divided. While some were worried about the possible food tampering, others felt there could be more to the story and that we shouldn't jump to conclusions. Read some of the reactions below:
"The vendor must seal the food perfectly and see that it's not tampered with..."
"It could be his own food; they are very good and polite. I always get sealed food. Sorry to say, we shouldn't judge anyone."
"Maybe he kept his food separately in his bag. Don't post immediate judgment without verifying."
"It could be his own food, and he kept it handy. Don't judge without knowing."
"What is wrong with this, maybe this person has bought his own food from any shop to eat while working."
"Maybe he kept some snacks for himself in the bag ..be human... delivery persons don't have hunger???"
"Usually Zomato delivers with multiple tapes. If tampered with, it can be easily identified."
