Security has been beefed across Sri Lanka as a 2 day nation wide curfew came into effect from 8pm on Saturday with nearly 1000 road blocks set up in all districts, the police said.

The police said that strict checking will be carried out in all districts on all vehicles and people who leave their homes and the road blocks will be manned by police who will be deployed on a 24 hour shift basis.
Further, mobile patrols will also be deployed on the roads in all districts and anyone defying the curfew will be arrested.
The police further urged Muslims, who will celebrate the Eid festival tomorrow, to avoid gatherings and celebrate the festival while being confined to their homes.
Anyone defying the curfew will be considered as breaking the quarantine law and strict action will be taken against them.
The curfew will be lifted on Tuesday at 5 am. 
Curfew will thereafter be lifted in all districts on Tuesday at 5 am, including in Colombo and Gampaha and will be imposed daily from 10 pm to 4 am.

    Good move to avoid people moving around during the festival. People should not take this negatively or as against one community.
