In an amusing but equally shocking case, an Indian Twitter user posted a picture of the stones that allegedly got delivered to his sister instead of the Rs 20,000-worth iPod she had ordered for from online retail giant Flipkart!

Nikhil Sekhar (@nikhilsekhar) posted the picture of two slabs of stone (see below) in a 160GB iPod box along with the tweet, "My sister got two stones instead of the INR 20K iPod that she ordered from Flipkart. What is wrong with you".

Flipkart was quick to respond on their official Twitter page, saying, "We are very sorry about the incident with our customer's iPod purchase, we're taking up this issue extremely seriously. We are equally shocked and investigating this so instances like this never recur. We have spoken to our customer and will make sure a replacement is sent over right away."

What exactly happened is yet to be revealed. What would you have done if this happened to you? What should be Flipkart's course of action following this potentially damaging incident? Let us know in the comments section!
