According to Navbharat, Home Minister Narottam Mishra expressed his disappointment regarding the incident.
“Whatever may have been the sentiment of the girl, her method was wrong. I have instructed the officials that action should be taken against the girl under the Motor Vehicles Act so that this trend does not increase,” he said.
