As per Vikatan report, Prabhakaran had paid Rs 90 for the return pass and while he was coming back he was not happy to see the board displaying return pass Rs 85. Prabhakaran enquired the Tollgate authorities and also contacted the supervisor. However, everybody dismissed him without proper response which had sent him into depression.

Therefore Prabhakaran filed a case at Nellai Consumer Court and appointed another advocate Brahma to handle the case. Upon investigation, the Nellai Consumer court stated that "Collecting extra 5 rupees is a dishonest trade"

"Therefore the Tollgate authorities should pay Rs 15,000 for sending the petitioner into depression, Rs 5000 for handling the case and Rs 5 which was charged extra for the return pass. Totally the Tollgate authorities should pay Rs 20,005 within 1 month or they are liable to pay the same amount with 6 per cent interest,"added the court statement.
