    Aniket Kalra, 25, and Himanshu Kumar, 23, allegedly placed orders for grocery items through the hacked accounts and later sold the items at lower prices

    Delhi Police arrested two men, Aniket Kalra, 25, and Himanshu Kumar, 23, both residents of Gurugram, for allegedly hacking multiple Swiggy delivery accounts, reported Indian Express.

    Kalra, who had previously worked as a delivery boy for both Swiggy and Zomato, and Kumar were accused of using an 'Interactive Voice Response System' to gain unauthorised access to Swiggy accounts. The duo allegedly placed orders for grocery items through the hacked accounts and later sold the items at lower prices, the report added.

    According to the police, Aniket Kalra used online discounts to purchase groceries at lower prices and resold them in the market, thereby saving between five to ten per cent on each order, the report said.
