A tragic incident occurred in Hyderabad when a 23-year-old delivery worker for the food delivery service Swiggy died in the hospital after leaping from the third floor of an apartment complex.
According to police, Mohammed Rizwan had gone to deliver an order to an apartment complex in Banjara Hills. When he knocked on the door of the customer’s apartment, a German Shepherd pet dog belonging to the customer growled and rushed at the door.
