A Cafe Coffee Day in Jaipur employee, who was caught on camera slapping a customer earlier this week, has said that she slapped him because he had called her a bitch and slut. A complaint has been registered against the customer Arpan Verma.

The Hindustan Times quoted Priyanka Priyadarshini, the employee, as saying, "Around 1pm on March 12, Verma and another person came to the café and ordered coffee and some beverages. When I told them that only coffee was available as the branch near Hawa Mahal was temporary, they got angry and Verma called me a slut and bitch."

India Today reports Priyadarshini told the police that after the incident, Verma and a friend who was accompanying him, left the cafe and later returned to shoot the video of the cockroaches.

The video had showed Verma pointing at the cockroaches and then at the employee who walks up to him and slaps him.

Verma had claimed in a tweet, "Being at the forefront of the abuses and threats received by the employees I started recording the abysmal state of hygiene wherein the cockroaches and other bugs present in the fridge were captured in the video and also depicted the employees who did not pay any heed to the request [sic]."

However Priyadarshini claims otherwise. While she agreed there were cockroaches, she claims that Verma pointed the camera at her, which is when she slapped him.
