Heckling of Korean girls: FIR filed against unnamed persons in UP

The Uttar Pradesh Police have finally filed a case against unnamed persons after a video on social media showed a mob heckling two South Korean women and accusing them of engaging in religious conversions.

The incident occurred at the Chaudhary Charan Singh University in Meerut on Saturday.

A video being circulated on social media showed a group of men surrounding the women and asking them what the purpose of their visit was, and who was with them.

Some members of the mob were heard chanting “Jai Shri Ram”. The group continued to heckle the women even as one of them tried to communicate with them in Hindi.

Circle Officer (Civil Lines) Arvind Kumar said that a police team nearby brought the matter under control and escorted the women to their hotel.

“One Local Intelligent Officer (LIU) was deployed for them, he was monitoring the situation all the time,” he said.

On Sunday, the girls took a flight to Delhi, from where they will return to their country on Monday.

The police said on Twitter that allegations that the women were engaging in religious conversion were completely false. They were in Meerut as tourists, and had visited the university on the suggestion of an Indian friend.

Meerut City Superintendent of Police Piyush Kumar Singh aid, that the police have registered a first information report under section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups) of the Indian Penal Code against unidentified persons.
