South Korean YouTuber and vlogger, who was recently molested in Mumbai, feels scared to go live again after the molesters were released on bail. 

Reacting to the news of their release, the YouTuber Hyojeong Park, who is known as Mhyochi online, tweeted, "Scared to go live today. Will I be okay?

Twitteratis expressed concern and asked her to be safe. A user commented, "Please stay safe dear. Please contact Mumbai police if you feel unsafe."

Similarly, another twitter user wrote, "We are you with.. don't worry," while a third user wrote, "There's so much more to see in India, why only stay in Mumbai?" 

The two accused – Mobeen Chand and Mohd Shaikh – were granted bail by a Mumbai court yesterday.

A video of the two sexually harassing the YouTuber while she was live on a street in Mumbai had gone viral. The incident took place when she was livestreaming in suburban Khar area.

While live streaming, Ms Park's video showed one of the accused getting close to her and holding her hand even when she protests. As she begins to walk away from them, the man appears again with another man on a bike and offers her a lift. She later tells him that she did not want it.

Later, she took to her Twitter handle and narrated her ordeal and wrote, “Last night on stream, there was a guy who harassed me. I tried my best not to escalate the situation and leave because he was with his friend. And some people said that it was initiated by me being too friendly and engaging the conversation. Makes me think again about streaming.”

Later, another video surfaced where a man and his friend can be seen helping the YouTuber. They rush to the spot to help Ms Park and ask the two molesters to go away and not harass the girl. The two molesters can be eventually seen leaving after the man's intervention, and the YouTuber thanks him profusely. Later, she expressed gratitude and took the two helpers on a dinner.
