Supreme Court refuses to lift ban on jallikattu

The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a petition to allow jallikattu. 

The top court refused to vacate its order passed on Tuesday staying the Centre's notification lifting ban on the bull-taming sport. 

During the hearing, the jallikattu supporters told the court that colonial law should not be allowed to regulate culture.

However, the apex court said it saw no reason to modify its order. 

The Supreme Court had on Tuesday stayed a central government notification allowing bull-taming and bullock cart racing.
