New Delhi:

Villagers in Tamil Nadu's Palamedu offer special prayers, conduct a symbolic Jallikattu event, defying SC's order.

Animal welfare body PETA on Thursday said the purpose of Jallikattu festival is to thank the nature which cannot be achieved by tormenting bulls and causing injuries and deaths to people and bulls.

The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the plea seeking to allow Jallikattu, a bull-taming sport played during Pongal festival in Tamil Nadu.

The Apex Court had banned Jallikattu in 2014 on grounds of animal cruelty which later led to the protests from political parties across the state.

The Court while turning down the plea termed it ‘unfair of the petitioner to ask the bench to pass an order’ .

Later, in November last year, SC dismissed the state government’s plea for a review of its 2014 judgment.

In a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Jallikattu issue, DMK on Friday charged that he had time to meet actors and others but not the AIADMK MPs who wanted to discuss about holding the banned bulltaming sport in Tamil Nadu during Pongal.
