Parents, along with the representatives of several NGOs like MV Foundation, expressed anguish over the future of their wards with the teacher resorting to such tasteless behaviour. They said they were forced to admit their children in the government school due to inability to seek admission in private institutions.

Following the protest, Mandal Education Officer Dharam Singh visited the school and conducted an inquiry into the allegations. Later, the MDO and local SI said action would be taken against the teacher after receiving the response of their higher officials. Representatives of several student organisations sought immediate dismissal of the teacher.
