Last month, a video of a Japanese woman being harassed and groped by a group of men on Holi went viral on the Internet. DCW Chief Swati Maliwal issued a notice to the police to examine the video and arrest the perpetrators.

The video shows the men smearing colour on the woman and groping her. One of them even smashes an egg on her head. Before getting away, the woman slaps one of the men. The video was shot in the Paharganj area.

The Japanese woman, who was initially silent, reacted to the video after leaving India. She called it "unfortunate." She revealed that she was "participating in the festival with 35 of her friends. She further said that she has visited India many times and has been fascinated by the country. She ended her tweet by saying that India and Japan will forever be "Tomodachi" (friends).

She also said that she tweeted the video but deleted it shortly as she "was terrified" by the reactions. Three men, including a juvenile, who were involved in the incident were arrested. The accused confessed their crime to the Delhi Police. The woman, however, did not officially file any complaint with the police.
