SC Will Hear Jallikattu Issues On Jan 31


New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday said that it will hear all Jallikattu matters on January 31 after the Centre filed a plea seeking to withdraw the January 6 notification, allowing the bull taming sport in Tamil Nadu.

A bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra allowed all the applications related to Jallikattu to be filed and said the matter will be heard on Tuesday. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi mentioned before the bench that Centre has filed a plea seeking to withdraw the January 2016 notification. Justice Misra said the appropriate bench which has heard and reserved the verdict will take up the matters.

The apex court has earlier said that it will be hearing the matter on January 30.

Amid a sea of protests raging across the state of Tamil Nadu, the government has passed the bill which allowed Jallikattu to be conducted. However, deaths were reported and cop violence was prevalent after days.
