On the 16th of March, the pastor received information from a villager that a group of individuals was planning on disrupting his worship service the following day. In light of this, the pastor decided to stop his worship activities early. The next day, as expected, a group of approximately 30 individuals arrived at the place of worship at around 12 p.m. and demanded to speak to the pastor. The pastor, however, had left early. Two individuals then grabbed the owner of the premises and assaulted her. A complaint was thereafter lodged at the Eravur Police Station, bearing number CIB 3 378/188.
