Supreme Court refuses to stay Tamil Nadu amendment on Jallikattu

The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to stay the Tamil Nadu government amendment permitting Jallikattu in the state but permitted animal rights bodies and individuals to amend their pending petitions to challenge the new legislation.

Coming down heavily on the Tamil Nadu government, the apex court said that it was the primary responsibility of state government to maintain law and order.

Issuing notice on a plea seeking stay on the amendment permitting the popular bull-taming sport, the bench comprising Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Rohinton Nariman, took exception to the manner in which the Supreme Court verdict was sought to be openly defied.

"We are only concerned with the court's honour, which we all share," the bench told the senior counsel appearing for Tamil Nadu government.

The court also allowed the Centre to withdraw January 7, 2016 notification which had sought to allow the bull taming sport in Tamil Nadu.
