It turns out that this woman is not associated with the food delivery platform at all, as per Zomato. The company's CEO, Deepinder Goyal took to X to clarify that Zomato "had absolutely nothing to do with this" and that they don't even have an employee with the title of "Indore Marketing Head". Furthermore, Goyal made it clear that the company does not "endorse helmet-less biking".

"This seems to be someone just "free-riding" on our brand. Having said that, there's nothing wrong with women delivering food - we have hundreds of women who deliver food every day to earn a livelihood for their families, and we are proud of their work ethic," Goyal wrote in the caption.

Goyal's post, in turn, has led to a spate of jokes and remarks on the incident. Check out some of the reactions below:
