A week after her two-month-old pet dog was allegedly taken away by a food delivery executive, Vandana Shah has filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in Bombay High Court (HC) against food aggregator Zomato. Her plea is that identification documents, like Aadhaar, of delivery executives should be made available to customers. In the PIL, Shah has urged that while delivery professionals possess all details of those who have placed the orders, the latter have nothing on them. Shah’s pet beagle, Dottu, went missing on October 7 from her factory-cum-residential premises on Karve Road. She and her family took to social media, requesting help to trace the puppy. A day after the pet went missing, she was able to find out that Dottu had been taken away by a food delivery executive. She managed to track down details of the person in question and called him.
