A meeting was convened at the Koralaipattu Divisional Secretariat at approximately 10:30 a.m., to discuss the issues surrounding the Christian place of worship. Representatives from the Kalkudah Police and 15 villagers were also present. The DS claimed that the place of worship was unauthorised and further claimed that the 2008 circular empowers him to intervene in these matters. He demanded an end to the pastor’s religious worship activities.
