New Delhi, Jan11: The Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear a batch of petitions against a recent government notification permitting Tamil Nadu's Jallikattu bull taming sport with some restrictions.

The petitioners, who also include animal rights activist Gauri Maulekhi, have sought the quashing of a government notification on Friday to overcome the 2014 Supreme Court ban on Jallikattu.

The central government, in a gazette notification, removed bulls form the list of animals that are banned from public display.

The central government allowed bulls to be exhibited as a performing animal at Jallikattu and bullock-cart races in Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra and Punjab.
