Mumbai: A video of an Indian family getting busted for stealing accessories from a hotel in Bali has now gone viral on social media. A two minutes 20 seconds long video shows one of the hotel staff scanning the family's luggage as they were on their way out from the hotel.

In the video, a woman can be seen arguing with the officials from the hotel who seem to be vigorously going through the suitcases. The family had allegedly "stolen" whatever they could get their hands on - which included mirror, hanger, artifacts, soap dispenser, and hairdryer, electronics, towels and so on.

 

She repeatedly asked the officials to let them go since they had a flight to catch. She even offers to pay for the stuff they'd stolen. A man also can be heard pleading to not call the police and saying, "I will pay.” However, the hotel officials refuse to accept payment.

The video sparked an outrage among people with many criticising the family for shaming India abroad. Here’s how people reacted, including actress Mini Mathur.

Just a few days back, business tycoon Harsh Goenka took to Twitter to share a notice he came across a hotel in Switzerland. It was specially addressed to Indian travellers and asked them to follow certain rules.
