People had strong opinions after looking at the video and they urged the police to investigate the matter.
“This guy should not be employed by anyone in future. Only when he is deprived of livelihood which he was insulting so shamelessly, he may learn lesson of his life,” said one user.
Many suggested that the man may not have been spitting but rather blowing away the extra flour from the rotis before placing them in the oven for cooking.
“I am not very sure but it can be possible that he is blowing away extra flour from roti. Now this may not be hygienic but the guy may not have bad intentions. Great that the matter is being probed. Hope investigation brings out the truth,” shared another user.
