September 24, 2018 

The pastor and his son arrived at the Passara Police Station at around 01:00 p.m. and met with a Sub-Inspector (SI). The 02 individuals mentioned above, and 02 others were also present. The villagers said they were against the construction of a church which was currently underway and falsely accused the pastor for not obtaining approval for the construction as outlined in the Circular issued by the Ministry of Buddha Sasana. The SI stated that this was a matter for the Passara Divisional Secretary to address and admonished the villagers for issuing threats.
