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.
