The congregants called the Chavakachcheri Police Station regarding the intrusion but there was no response. Some congregants then went to the police station and brought the police with them at around 10:45 a.m. Considering the tense situation, the Officer-in-Charge (OIC) told the pastor to disperse the crowd. He then told the pastor to come to the police station for questioning and threatened him with arrest if he refused to comply.
The police filed a complaint against the pastor and his place of worship. The OIC warned the villagers against taking the law into their hands.
