March 23, 2018 

The mob then made its way to the pastor’s home at around 05 p.m., where they threatened the pastor and his wife, falsely accused them of unethical conversion, and demanded they leave the village. Around 11 police officers from the Kuda Oya Police Station were but did not intervene. After the mob dispersed, an Inspector of Police approached the pastor and informed him that no one could forcibly remove him from the village and that the local police held a neutral position regarding the matter.
