Later that evening, at around 06 p.m., the pastor went to the Eravur Police Station to lodge a complaint regarding the incident. The police inspector he spoke to claimed that he could only file a complaint after the Officer-in-Charge (OIC) was informed of the incident. He then informed the OIC who warned the pastor not to lodge false complaints. The pastor had to convince the OIC that his complaint was genuine. The pastor was kept waiting 02 hours before his information was taken, and the entry was not recorded correctly.
