After the death of the priest, the situation became tense in the area after the local Hindu organisations, NGOs and members of Warangal Bar Association came together and called a bandh in Mandi Bazar, Pochamma Maidan and other localities in the city. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Kesireddy Jaipal Reddy has demanded the state government that the death penalty should be given to the Imam Sayeed Sadhiq Hussain.

Reddy asked the State government to announce ex gratia to the family members of the priest. He also requested the government that adequate security must be given to Saibaba temple to ensure such incidents do not recur in future, he added. The body of the priest has been taken to his native village Mogilicherla for the final rites.
