A video that shows an Indian family getting caught red-handed with items they stole from their hotel has gone massively viral online. Reportedly shot in Bali, the video shows hotel staff searching the family's luggage and pulling out accessories and toiletries that they pinched from their rooms. People on Twitter, where the video has been widely circulated, have condemned the incident as "disgraceful" and embarrassing for the country.
In the video, members of the family are heard apologising repeatedly and offering to pay for the items they stole. "Sorry, I will pay. Extra money I will pay," a man is heard saying as employees ask him to explain why hotel items, including a hair dryer, soap dispenser, mirror and jars, were found in their bags.
"I know you have a lot of money but this is no respect," the employee responds, even as the family continues to apologise.
