In Sholurmattam of Nilgiris district in Tamil Nadu, on December 18, 2016 a Sunday morning worship service at a church was rudely disrupted by the Sub-inspector of the Sholurmattam Police station who is believed to be acting at the behest of a local hindutva group.

The Policeman barged into the church in the middle of the prayers and shouted at the Pastor that it is illegal to conduct such Christian prayers without the prior permission of the district collector.

It is reported that in the last one month the same police office has also targeted a TPM church and other home churches in this jurisdiction.
