The Karnataka government on Wednesday  revised the night curfew timings in the state, being brought in as a precautionary measure amid fears of a new variant of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) detected in the United Kingdom.

Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said that the night curfew will now begin from December 24 to January 1 between 11 pm and 5 am. The earlier timing was 10 pm to 6 am which the F&B industry saw as a blow to its hopes for good business during the festive week.
