Croma strongly denounces attack on employee over iPhone 15 delivery delay
Two individuals were arrested for the assault at a Croma store in Delhi. They became enraged when their iPhone 15 was not delivered on the expected day of delivery.
Consumer electronics and durables retailer Croma has condemned the act of thrashing of its employee over a delay in delivery of an iPhone and said will fully cooperate with the investigations.
On Saturday, 24 September, two men were arrested for allegedly beating up an employee of an electronic store of Croma in north Delhi's Roop Nagar over delay in delivery of an iPhone they ordered.
The company has zero tolerance for such kind of unacceptable behaviour, said a statement from Croma, which is owned by Tata group company Infiniti Retail.
"We strongly condemn the verbal and physical abuse of a partner employee by a customer in our store at New Delhi on September 22, 2023. As a brand, Croma deeply values our customers and are committed to being customer-centric.
"However, we have zero tolerance for such kind of unacceptable behaviour and will extend full cooperation to the investigating agencies. We are also offering all support to the affected individuals," said a Croma spokesperson.
