An Indian YouTuber named Sumit Verma is said to be in trouble for posting a video in which he randomly walks up to women in public places, kisses them and runs away.

The Delhi police are now investigating the video and have urged “his victims” to file a complaint.

After severe backlash, Sumit apologised and deleted his prank video.He claimed that he made the video for entertainment matters and had no intention of hurting anybody.

However, the public are not convinced by his explanation.

The YouTuber has more than 150,000 subscribers to his “Crazy Sumit” channel.

“The video has come to Delhi Police’s notice through media. We have started the initial technical inquiry. This obscene video is available on Facebook and YouTube links and we are probing this,” Police spokesperson Dependra Pathak told the PTI news agency.

“I see this kind of sexual perversion on social media in the name of getting likes, online publicity and maybe even some money is involved in it,” he added.
