New Delhi, Jan 27: The Supreme Court would hear all matters pertaining to Jallikattu on January 30. The court informed the litigants that all matters pertaining to the issue would be clubbed together and taken up for hearing.


Meanwhile, the centre filed an interlocutory application. The centre says that it wants to be heard before any orders on the issue is passed. A petition had been filed in the Supreme Court challenging the bill passed by the Tamil Nadu government in which Jallikattu was legalised.

Meanwhile, some lawyers from Tamil Nadu too filed an IA opposing the petition challenging Jallikattu. In the IA they state that the petitioners, the Animal Welfare Board of India had no locus standi to challenge the bill.
