Supreme Court rejects plea to allow Jallikattu before Pongal

The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the plea seeking to allow Jallikattu, a bull-taming sport played during Pongal festival in Tamil Nadu.
The Court while turning down the plea termed it ‘unfair of the petitioner to ask the bench to pass an order’ .
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. Later, in November last year, SC dismissed the state government’s plea for a review of its 2014 judgment.
