Jallikattu: Supreme Court refuses to vacate stay

New Delhi(PTI): The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to vacate its order staying the Centre’s notification lifting ban on the controversial bull-taming sport Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu.

A bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and N V Ramana said that Tuesday’s order by which the Centre’s notification was stayed doesn’t warrant any alteration. The bench said it was unimpressed with the submission that Jallikattu should be allowed under the strict supervision of this court.

The fresh petitions were filed by some residents of Tamil Nadu who had sought vacation of yesterday’s order saying that the age-old cultural tradition of the state should be allowed to continue.
