Expressing disappointment over the incident, Assam Chief Minister Sarbanada Sonowal had tweeted,”Really unfortunate incident after a great game aimed to tarnish Guwahati’s reputation as emerging sports hub. We strongly condemn it. Our deep apology. People of assam never endorse such behaviour.we will punish the guilty.”

A day after the incident took place, the Assam police caught two people. Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore also reacted sharply, saying that security of visiting players is extremely important.

“Guwahati stone-throwing incident NOT reflective of our security measures. Aus team & FIFA are content w/those. India remains a graceful host,” Rathore posted on his twitter account. Senior Indian player Ravichandran Ashwin had also condemned the act, urging fans to show more responsibility. “The stone thrown at the Aussie team bus shows us in bad light, let’s all act more responsibly. A vast majority of us are capable of that,” Ashwin tweeted.
