It was reported in May that a pizza place in Mumbai, India, used an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to deliver a pizza to a customer in a high-rise apartment. It is now revealed to be a hoax.

Mumbai Mirror says that following the story's wild rush from the media, police took a closer look and revealed that the video of the “delivery” was highly edited, comprising various clips from different locations to deceive the viewer.

Not only was there no 13-inch Margherita pizza, but there was no pizza at all – rather, an empty box that was attached to the UAV, which then flew and was filmed no higher than 10 feet outside the restaurant, in a parking lot, inside an apartment and on a terrace.

Police began the investigation in the interest of security but have not found anything to charge the restaurant with, according to the article.
