Meanwhile, opposition Congress condemned the incident and alleged the BJP government has failed to protect the honour of women in the State.

Madhya Pradesh Congress President Kantilal Bhuria said the episode shows some people have no fear of law or law enforcing agencies. Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh termed it as "shameful" and said women are finding it difficult to live with dignity under the BJP government.
