The video clip, posted by Twitter user Girish Alva, shows what happened after the woman was molested. An Indian man can be seen telling the woman that he was watching her live-stream and rushed to the spot. He can be seen talking to the two accused, asking them to not harass the woman.

The Mumbai police have arrested the two men, and the Korean woman has said the police acted swiftly.
Speaking to NDTV yesterday, the woman had said she was walking back to her hotel when two young men yelled at her on the road and tried to kiss her.
"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.
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.
