A user account named @aditi094 expressed the criticism on the incident and penned:

"They were trying to protect the other residents of that locality by screening a suspected case at his/her residence. A huge risk was taken by the entire team of health officials who went and this is how they were thanked. Appalling!"

Following a leading daily, coronavirus patients in Indore cover 76 percent of the total cases in Madhya Pradesh state. Pravin Jadia, the Chief Medical & Health Officer (CMHO) in Indore claimed:

"Our team is working to protect people from the coronavirus infection. But people pelted stones at them. It was an unfortunate incident. Two women doctors somehow protected themselves by hiding in tehsildar's vehicle."

Since the situation was reported seriously, they filed a complaint to Chhatripura police station. According to a policeman, the protesters included in the attack even destroyed the barricade. Since then, they will be accused of rioting. Investigators pointed out that those actions happened due to lacking awareness of the pandemic and widely-spread rumors.
