    SC refers Jallikattu matter to Constitution Bench

    The court had in December indicated that it may refer the matter to a Constitution Bench. The court had however refused to stay the sport which is played in Tamil Nadu as part of the Pongal harvest festival.

    The SC had banned Jallikattu in 2014 following petitions from Animal Rights activists who had said that it amounted to extreme cruelty towards animals.

    The state of Tamil Nadu had however enacted a law to bypass the verdict of the Supreme Court following massive protests that erupted in the state. The law was challenged in the Supreme Court and will now be decided by a Constitution Bench.
