South Korean YouTuber To NDTV On Harassment


The video shows the man getting close to her and holding her hand despite her protesting.


Someone watching her live-stream helped her, the South Korean woman who was harassed in Mumbai last night said. Speaking to NDTV, she said she was walking back to her hotel when two young men yelled at her on the road and tried to kiss her. Police have arrested two men, and called her to inform that they will send a woman constable to get her statement, she added.

“I tried my best not to escalate the situation. He started to grab my waist and drag me to his motorcycle. I wasn’t feeling comfortable and said I’m not comfortable,” she narrated, adding that they tried to follow her and asked for her phone number as well. “I gave them a fake number, so they would leave,” she said.


The South Korean woman, who could be seen rattled in the video clip, said she tied her best not to escalate the situation as there were two men harassing her.

She, however, does not hold the horrifying experience against the country. “This happens everywhere, not just in India. Indians are as beautiful as other parts of the world,” she said.

She said she was satisfied and happy with the action taken by the Mumbai Police, as she has faced similar situations in other countries, where there were no repercussions.

“I will not leave India, I will not let this ruin my trip,” she said, adding that she has met many”amazing” people in this country.

In a video shared online, one of the accused was seen pulling the YouTuber by her hand as she shouts “no, no”, in Mumbai’s Khar last night.

The video shows the man getting close to her and holding her hand despite her protesting.

As she walks away, he appears again with another man on a bike and offers her a lift. The woman denies it and tells them in broken English that her house is nearby.

The woman shared the video from her Twitter account, and wrote, “Last night on stream, there was a guy who harassed me. I tried my best not to escalate the situation and leave because he was with his friend. And some people said that it was initiated by me being too friendly and engaging the conversation. Makes me think again about streaming.”

The police have registered a case of sexual assault on its own based on the video. The accused were identified as Mobeen Chand Mohd Shaikh, 19, and Mohd Naqib Sadarialam Ansari, 20.

“Mumbai Police’s Khar Police station has taken a Suo Moto action in an incident that happened with a Korean woman (foreigner) in the jurisdiction of Khar West. In this regard, both the accused have been arrested and booked under relevant sections of the IPC,” Mumbai Police said in a tweet.
