SC seeks Govt. explanation on Jallikattu celebration in TN

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The Supreme on Thursday sought an explanation from the Central on its amendments and agreement for conducting bull taming sport Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu.

The Centre notification allowing Jallikattu in this year has been challenged by the Animal Welfare Association.

An apex bench comprising Justice Amitava Roy and headed by Justice asked the Centre to explain the conditions under which they allow the festival to be celebrated.

"How can you nullify the SC judgement, which sets aside the performance of Jallikattu in and all over because the 2011 notification of the SC prohibits the animals, including bull, being used as performance bulls," G.S. Mani, a lawyer said.

Additional Solicitor General P.S. Narsimhan represented the during the hearing in this case.

The apex had in its earlier judgement discouraged conducting the Jallikattu festival while stating that the sport can be played only if it does not hurt the bulls or inflict any sort of pain upon them.

The matter will be next heard on December 7.
