Swiggy, the food delivery app, is offering Rs 5,000 reward for the first person to identify the delivery man who was seen riding a horse to deliver food amidst the heavy rain in Mumbai.

The reward announcement comes days after a video of one of their apparent executives riding a horse to deliver orders during heavy rain in Mumbai went viral on social media.

A video of a delivery man carrying a Swiggy delivery bag had gone viral last week.

After the video went viral, Swiggy released a statement to address the horse in the room as the company has failed to identify the person as the video was recorded from behind and inside a car.

Come forward. Do your share as a good citizen of India. Because the nation wants to know more about the Swiggyman on the horse. And so do we, Swiggy wrote in its twitter post.

The post has accumulated more than 17,000 likes and the numbers are increasing even after 15 hours of the post.

Since the video was posted, it has been receiving tons of comments and reactions and Swiggy has now joined the Tweeple with a witty post.

The share has also prompted people to post memes and asking for the bounty reward. I think you are looking for him, said one user posting an image of Hatim, a Hindi fantasy drama TV series that aired almost two decades ago.

After failed attempts to identify the man in the video, Swiggy has decided to offer Rs 5,000 as a bonus for the first person who can provide some useful information about the company’s accidental brand ambassadors, so that the company could thank them.

It is indeed ironic that a food delivery giant that earns thousands of rupees per minute is giving such a puny reward of Rs 5000 for tracing the horseman. The people of Mumbai are facing flood-like conditions due to heavy rains over the last week. And they will step out with gaping manholes and in waist-deep water for 5k? Really, Swiggy?
