A video of a YouTuber, reportedly from South Korea, being harassed on a Mumbai street is going viral as netizens demand action. The video, shared on Twitter by a user named Aditya, shows how a man harassed the YouTuber by grabbing her hand while she was live. “@MumbaiPolice A streamer from Korea was harassed by these boys in Khar last night while she was live streaming in front of 1000+ people. This is disgusting and some action needs to be taken against them. This cannot go unpunished," it said.

The one-minute-long undated video shows a young man offering a lift to the woman by grabbing her hand even as she protests. The woman is seen keeping her calm even when he tries to come close to her. Later in the video, she is able to dodge him and begins to walk away as she says on the stream, “Time to go home”. But soon the man, along with another person on a bike, follows her and offers the lift again. “Come, this seat,” he says in broken English to which she replies her vehicle is parked nearby.

The video was later claimed by an account named Mhyochi whose bio read that she was a 24-year-old content creator and gamer. “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 in the conversation. Makes me think again about streaming," Mhyochi said narrating the incident.

The Mumbai police, following an investigation, has now arrested two men named Mobeen Chand Mohammad Shaikh and Mohammad Naqeeb Sadrealam Ansari in the matter, ANI reported. An FIR was registered by Mumbai's Khar police under section 354 of Indian Penal Code for outraging a woman's modesty.
