Despite SC's ban, Naam Tamilar party workers conduct Jallikattu

Despite Supreme Court's order, which rejected a plea seeking allowance of the controversial sport Jallikattu played during Pongal festival in Tamil Nadu, the Naam Tamilar party workers on Thursday were detained for holding the game in Cuddalore. The party workers arranged and participated in the dangerous sport despite strict orders of the apex court. In 2014, the court had banned Jallikattu on grounds of animal cruelty.
