At the instruction of the chief minister, the DGP Sahay along with the chief secretary V K Pipersania and state sports minister N K Doley met the Australian cricket team at their hotel to take stock of the incident.
India's sports minister Wednesday sought to reassure Australian cricketers about their safety after a rock shattered a window on the bus taking them to their hotel following a series-leveling win in the second Twenty20 worldwide. The seat next to the window was unoccupied at the time. "We strongly condemn it", Sonowal said on his official Twitter account.
"Whoever got indulged in the hooliganism did it with the sole objective of defaming Assam & derailing its journey towards the top. the culprits will face the full force of the law & given exemplary punishment".
Australian opener Aaron Finch had tweeted a picture of a broken window saying, "Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!" But the incident raised a question mark on the Assam Cricket Association (ACA) and state police's security arrangements for the match at the newly-constructed stadium in Barsapara.
"Have spoken to Sarbananda Sonowalji about the Guwahati incident".
"Personal security of visiting athletes & teams is extremely important for us", he tweeted.
Indian fans who are known for being among the most passionate followers of the game were humiliated last night when the news appeared that the Australian team bus was attacked with stones after the conclusion of the 2nd T20I at Guwahati.
That prompted authorities to tighten security around the Australia team.
David Warner, captaining the side in the absence of the injured Steve Smith, fell in the first over after hitting two boundaries off seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar but Australia seemed to have recovered through Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell.
