In a disturbing incident, South Korean vlogger Kelly became the target of harassment while recording a video in Maharashtra. The horrifying encounter unfolded as she interacted with locals, capturing the unsettling moment on camera, leading to widespread circulation on social media.
The incident occurred while Kelly engaged with people at a local market, casually sipping coconut water. The video depicts her conversing with shopkeepers and customers when suddenly, a man aggressively grabs her, placing his hand around her neck while staring directly into the camera. Another individual joins, standing beside her, as the first man instructs him, saying, "Don't stand so far. Hold her like this." Despite Kelly's attempts to distance herself, the man persists in holding her, leaving her visibly startled, though she manages to maintain a smile.
Expressing her shock, Kelly exclaims, "I had to run away," as she walks away from the scene, bidding the men farewell with a "Namaste." She further comments on the incident, saying, "Wow. They really like to hug. I don’t know why. Let’s go, let’s run away," before disposing of the coconut in a cardboard garbage bin, concluding the vlog.
The video, garnering over 8.7 lakh views, prompted numerous Indians to comment, offering apologies to Kelly for the harassment she endured. The incident has sparked outrage, emphasizing the need for awareness and action against such reprehensible behaviour.
