SLA refuses to lift curfew during Nalloor temple annual festival

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 28 July 2009, 17:32 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities refused to lift the night curfew imposed in the peninsula in response to the request of the Saiva Organizations which wanted the curfew lifted during the Nalloor Kanthasuvami temple annual festival which began Monday so that devotees from all parts of the peninsula could attend the festival conveniently, sources in Jaffna said.

The 25 day annual festival of the historically famous Nalloor Kanthasuvami temple which began Monday will end on 20 August with ‘water cutting’ ceremony.

The SLA imposed curfew is in force daily from 11:00 p.m to 4:00 a.m.

SLA authorities refused to lift the curfew even within the limits of Jaffna Municipal Council, the sources added.
