BENGALURU: Zomato said on Thursday that a delivery partner, arrested by the Gujarat police in connection with the murder of Hindu Samaj Party leader Kamlesh Tiwari, “has never been an employee at Zomato”.

The anti-terrorism squad of the Gujarat police arrested Moinuddin Pathan near the state border with Rajasthan earlier in the week.

“All our delivery partners are independent freelancers. He started working as a freelancer with us on 17 August 2019. Between that date and 6 October 2019, he worked part-time on our platform in Surat, as he was based there,” Zomato said. It also claimed that Pathan had ceased to work with them on October 6.

The firm received flak from users on social media regarding customer safety after Pathan was arrested.
