The National Commission of Women (NCW) has taken note of the incident and has demanded strong action against the TMC leader. The TMC leader was sacked after the female teacher filed a police complaint against the leader at a local police station at South Dinajpur. 

The Police have registered the complaint but so far no arrest has been made into the matter as the Panchayat TMC leader remains to be absconding so far.
