Gurugram: A delivery executive of an e-commerce firm allegedly stole 10 iPhones by replacing them with dummy phones on the way to deliver them to the customer here, police said on Thursday.
Station in-charge of Matrix Finance Solution, which delivers Amazon’s parcel, Ravi in his complaint alleged that on March 27 delivery executive Lalit was handed over a customer’s parcel, which contained 10 iPhones and an AirPods, at his address, they said.
