The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has imposed restriction and close surveillance on the movement of about forty families residing in the surrounding of the historic Thiruketheeswaram Sivan Temple following several explosions and violent incidents in other parts of the Mannar district. These families are among several hundred families displaced in the year 1990 due to violence. They were allowed to resettle to assist reconstruction work on the damaged temple.

Thallady main camp of the SLA is located close to the temple and the temple area has been declared by the SLA as high security zone.

SLA authorities two days ago confiscated thirty-five bags of cement taken by workers for the construction of the temple, sources said.
