With the hike in the prices of onions, a photo of an unguarded sack of the onions lying outside a Mumbai restaurant is going viral. A popular Mumbai blogger found the sight of it remarkable despite the reports of onions being stolen in other parts of the nation. The photo showed a sack of onions placed outside a closed restaurant near the Sewri railway station in Mumbai. The blogger, who runs ‘Mumbai Paused’ blog, wrote, “Is this is how safe Mumbai is?”

Netizens started trolling this picture in no time. While some people joked that no one wanted to mess with Delhi people (given the name of the restaurant) others said it was sad to see that onions are safe in the country but not women.
