An Apex Court bench headed by Chief Justice TS Thakur agreed to hear a plea tomorrow after they were mentioned by senior counsel Siddharth Luthra today morning. The petitioners, who also include animal rights activist Gauri Maulekhi, have sought the quashing of a government notification on Friday to overcome the 2014 Supreme Court ban on Jallikattu.

The Central government, in a gazette notification, removed bulls form the list of animals that are banned from public display. The Central government allowed bulls to be exhibited as a performing animal at Jallikattu and bullock-cart races in Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra and Punjab.
