    In a heartwarming instance of reaching out to help, Mohammed Aqeel, a city-based food delivery executive with Zomato was gifted a motorcycle with crowd funding after one of his clients discovered that he delivers parcels on a bicycle as he could not afford a bike.

    On June 14 Mr Aqeel went to Rubin Mukesh, a customer, to deliver his order. The customer, who came down from his apartment, noticed that the executive came riding a bicycle instead of the usual motorbike.

    "The delivery boy asked me to come down to collect the delivery. When I went down I noticed that he had come to me in just 20 minutes, on a bicycle riding nine kilometers drenched in the rain. I posted his picture in one of the social media groups and its members responded, saying that something has to be done for Aqeel," Mr Mukesh, an IT professional, told PTI.

    The group members decided to raise funds for a bike to be gifted to the delivery man for his dedication towards his profession.

    Members of the foodies group in Facebook in which Aqeel's story was posted on June 14 raised 73,000 against the requirement of 65,000, Mr Mukesh said.

    Along with the bike, Mr Aqeel was given a helmet, sanitiser, raincoat and masks on June 18.

    The 21 year-old Aqeel is pursuing his B.Tech third year. His father is a cobbler.

    "I sincerely thank all of you. I was delivering parcels for over one year on a bicycle. Now that I have a motorbike, I can deliver up to 20 to 25 parcels per day," Mr Aqeel said.
