Family Caught Stealing Accessories, Electronics from Bali Hotel

A family from India has sparked national outrage after stealing accessories from a hotel in Bali, Indonesia last week.

In a now-viral video, a member of the hotel staff can be seen going through the luggage of the family, who were about to leave the premises.



As seen in the video, the family took various items from the hotel, including a bottle of liquid soap, a mirror, some towels and even a hair dryer.

“We are really very sorry. This is a family tour. We will pay you. Please let us go because we have to catch our flight,” a woman told the staff.

“Each of us carrying an #IndianPassport must remember that we are ambassadors of the nation and behave accordingly.

“India must start cancelling passports of people who erode our credibility.”



In an Instagram post on Saturday, police confirmed that the incident took place at the The Royal Purnama hotel in Sukawati.

Apparently, a housekeeping manager saw the guests throwing items over a villa wall, which prompted the inspection of their luggage.

The incident sparked outcry in India, which Indonesians hold “in very high esteem,” according to @hemathpmc.

Television host and actress Mini Mathur, for one, described it as the “worst example of entitled Indian travelers who are a disgrace to the image of our country.”

Meanwhile, others pointed out that similar incidents happen elsewhere.

The family has since returned the items and paid compensation for those not found.
