The Supreme Court on Thursday, May 18, upheld the validity of the Tamil Nadu law allowing the traditional bull-taming sport 'Jallikattu' in the state.

A five-judge Constitution bench led by Justice K M Joseph also found no illegality in Maharashtra and Karnataka laws, allowing similar bullock carts race and Kambala, respectively.

The court noted the 'Jallikattu' has been going on in the state for a last few centuries and the law passed by the state government took care of cruelty, if any, caused to the animals.

The court also noted Amendment Acts passed by the three states had also received the President's assent and do not violate provisions of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
