The world is going through a crisis. And, during these testing times, it has become extremely difficult for few people to pull within. Migrants and poor people are suffering.

Recently, a group of people in Delhi stole crates of mangoes left unattended by a street vendor, reports NDTV. According to Chhote, a fruit-seller in north Delhi’s Jagatpuri area, the incident occurred after a fight broke out in the neighborhood.

Some people had reportedly asked Chhote to move his theli (pushcart) away. So, while the fruit vendor was trying to contend with the people, his crates lay casual. Taking advantage of the situation passersby started stealing his mangoes.

A dozen of people pounced upon the unattended crates of mangoes, reports the Business Standard.  Some riders even put mangoes in their helmets while several others called out hawkers, encouraging them to take some mangoes as well. The incident even caused a small traffic jam in the area. The fruit-vendor obviously incurred a huge loss due to the event. He claims the total cost of those mangoes was about 30k.

“I had 15 crates of mangoes here worth about Rs 30,000. They took everything,” Chhote was quoted saying.

Chhote has filed a complaint with the police. During a time where businesses have been slow for everyone, such an incident can hugely affect the livelihood of a person. The incident not only violates social distancing protocol but also displays signs of inhumanity and low dignity.
