The one-minute-long undated video shows a young man offering a lift to the woman by grabbing her hand even as she objects. Park 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.

Park said she will continue to follow her passion to show India to other countries and keep on travelling the country. “I don't want this one bad incident to ruin my whole travel and my passion to show wonderful India to other countries,” she said.

The Mumbai Police arrested two men named Mobeen Chand Mohammad Shaikh and Mohammad Naqeeb Sadrealam Ansari and an FIR was registered under section 354 of the Indian Penal Code. They were sent to one-day police custody.
