Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant condemned the incident and said “anti-social" elements were behind it. “I have directed the Police to take the harshest action against the perpetrators," he said.

As the situation worsened, Sawant imposed harsh measures, IPC section 307 was added to the FIR, and the police then detained three of the case's defendants.
