Watch: Ban on animal sacrifice violated at Mailarlingeshwar Jathra mahotsava

Yadgir (Karnataka), Jan 15 (ANI): In a rare ritual, people in the Karnataka's Yadgir district were seen throwing live goats at the 'pallaki' as part of the Mailarlingeshwar Jathra mahotsava. Despite the ban on animal sacrifice, Mailarlingeshwar Jatra saw several devotees flinging live goats at the 'pallaki' of the presiding deity during the procession.

Despite the district administration setting up checkposts at different points to prevent devotees from transporting goats to the jatra, and engage in the ritual of flinging them at the 'pallaki' as part of the festival, several devotees managed to slip past the checkposts with the animals. On the day on procession the Karnataka police detained near 1100 goats from the devotees in the check posts in Yadgir district.
