An Indian family was caught stealing accessories from a hotel in Bali. A video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

rather "embarrassing" video of a group of Indian tourists "stealing accessories" from a hotel in Indonesia's Bali has gone viral on social media. In the 2.20 minute clip, a man, who appears to be from the Bali hotel, is seen scanning the baggage of an Indian family while they were on their way out of the resort.

At first, members of the Indian family are seen arguing with the hotel staff. But that didn't stop the man from opening every suitcase and taking out things that were stolen from their room - such as towels, electronics, decorative pieces and other stuff. "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," one of the women is seen telling the man.

Other security officials are also seen frisking their baggage in the video. "I will pay," one of the family members exclaimed but the man from the hotel refused to take money: "I know you have a lot of money but this is no respect."

The video has been posted online by a user called Hemanth, who said in the caption, "Such an embarrassment for India. 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."

Earlier today, industrialist Harsh Goenka posted a notice issued by Hotel Arc-en-ciel in Gstaad, Switzerland that included a list of rules only for Indian guests. 

The notice was issued by Christian Matti, manager of Hotel Arc-en-ciel in Gstaad, Switzerland and included a list of rules only for Indian guests. "Dear guests from India, Welcome to Hotel Arc-en-ciel in Gstaad," it said, adding that in order for "you to enjoy your holiday", a set of rules were required to be followed.

'Guests from India' were asked to refrain from carrying "anything" from the breakfast buffet. "Please do not take anything with you, the food is for breakfast only. If you would like a lunch bag, you can order it from the service stall and pay for it." Indian tourists were also asked to use the cutlery provided at the table.

Moreover, guests were directed to not "speak loudly" in the balcony and "be quiet" in the corridor. "In addition to you, there are other guests from all over the world in the hotel. They also appreciate the peace and quiet," it said. "Thank you very much and enjoy your stay in Gstaad," Christian Matti signed off the notice after listing the entire set of rules and regulations.
