Jallikattu supporters taken into custody

  • Several supporters of jallikattu were taken into preventive custody near here for allegedly trying to defy a ban on the traditional bull taming sport associated with Pongal festivities.
  • The step came following indications by various organisations to organise the sport on Pongal.
  • The Supreme Court had said it could not give its verdict on Jallikattu before Pongal even as political parties cutting across party lines had demanded from the Centre promulgation of an ordinance to allow the sport.
