Tension prevailed in Vadavalam village in Pudukottai district as some villagers allegedly pelted the police with stones.
- Defying the SC ban on conducting jallikattu, a bull taming sport, organisers in some interior villages went ahead with the event challenging the district administration and police to take action.
- In a few places, instead of the bull taming sport, organisers conducted ‘eruthattam’ (bull chase).
- The villagers allegedly brought bulls to the local temple under the pretext of offering worship but tried to use them to organise jallikattu.
- Officials of the Animal Welfare Board of India said the inaction of authorities in dealing with those who openly defied the court order amounted to contempt of judiciary.
