Animal rights organisations challenge new law on Jallikattu by Tamil Nadu government in SC

Tamil Nadu, Jan 25, 2017: Animal Welfare Board of India and other animal rights organisations have challenged the new law passed by Tamil Nadu Assembly to allow bull taming sport Jallikattu in the state.

The Justice Dipak Misra headed bench agreed to hear the pleas which were listed urgently before the bench. Senior advocates Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Anand Grover were asked to file their applications. These applications will be taken up for hearing on 30th January when the Centre’s plea for withdrawing the January 6, 2016, notification will be taken up.

The animal rights organisations have mentioned in their pleas that the new law passed by Tamil Nadu Assembly to allow Jallikattu has over reached the earlier verdict of apex court. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi gave a statement saying that the Centre has decided to withdraw the January 6, 2016 notification allowing Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu. The apex court, which had reserved its verdict on a batch of petitions challenging the notification, had said that the concerned bench would take a decision on when the application of the Centre would come up for its consideration.

The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tamil Nadu Amendment), Act, 2017 piloted by Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, was adopted unopposed on January 23 by a voice vote in the assembly after a brief debate.

To seek prior hearing if pleas challenging the new legislation allowing Jallikattu in the state come up for consideration, nearly 70 caveats have been filed in the Supreme Court . The caveats were filed a day after the AIADMK government moved the apex court seeking a prior hearing before any order is proposed to be passed in the matter.
