The Supreme Court on Friday referred a batch of petitions challenging the law passed by the Tamil Nadu legislature allowing the practice of the bull-taming sport, Jallikattu, to a Constitution bench.

A bench comprising justices Rohinton F. Nariman and Navin Sinha have framed five questions that will be considered by the Constitution bench to decide the issue.

The court had earlier observed that the matter was of great importance and was likely to be referred to a Constitution bench.

Among several issues that needed to be considered was whether the practice of Jallikattu could be claimed as a cultural right under the Constitution. Another was whether the state of Tamil Nadu had the competence to legislate on the matter, the court observed.
