SC postpones Jallikattu order on Centre’s request

The Supreme Court has accepted Centre’s plea to not deliver its judgment on Jallikattu for a week.

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi mentioned before CJI Jagdish Singh Khehar that Jallikattu judgement should be deferred till next week as Union and state governments are trying to find a way out on the issue.

Earlier, Tamil Nadu CM O Panneerselvam announced that the state government will amend a central act on Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to allow the conduct of Jallikattu in the state with the Centre’s backing, and urged protestors across the state to withdraw their agitation following the likelihood of the bull-taming sport to be held in a “day or two.”
