The Madras High Court Bench in Madurai has directed the Madurai District Collector to consider objections raised by a group of villagers from Keelapatti near Madurai agaist the permission granted to another group for conducting “jallikattu” (bull fight) on June 8.

In a petition, the villagers had apprehended that the jallikattu might lead to caste clash in the village.

Disposing of the pettion, a Division Bench comprising Justice V Periya Karuppiah and Justice G M Akbar Ali directed the Collector to hear the petitioner.
