Laws will be strictly implemented in 19 police areas in Gampaha and Negombo, where police curfew has been imposed, from today, Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said.
Accordingly, vehicles are not allowed to park besides main roads and buses are not allowed to load and unload passengers.

However, long-distance buses are allowed to pass through the curfew imposed areas.
