The pastor and 02 congregants arrived at the Nittambuwa Police Station at approximately 11:30 a.m. for an inquiry with the Officer-in-Charge (OIC). The neighbour who was named a suspect was also present. The neighbour made false allegations against the pastor and his religious worship activities. The OIC reprimanded the neighbour and told him that the pastor’s rights could not be curtailed. Prior to this, the neighbour had also lodged a complaint against the pastor, bearing number CIB (III) 118/213. Considering the ongoing dispute between the two parties, the OIC referred the matter to the Attanagalla Magistrates Court. A court case bearing number 43683 was filed on the 30th of January.
