The Maharashtra State Commission for Women has sought an inquiry into the "shameful" incident.

Quite pathetic to see people attacking #zaira wasim— Gutta Jwala (@Guttajwala) December 10, 2017
No wonder the girls r scared to come out and report harassment!! What’s even worse is to see women taking part in these attacks!! #Shameful #pathetic
Any harassment/crime against women shld be dealt with swiftly & effectively. As a mother of 2 daughters I am appalled at what happened with @zairawasimz. Hope the relevant authorities take strict action @airvistara @Ashok_Gajapathi @jayantsinha
