SC refuses to stay new TN law on Jallikattu

The apex court permitted animal rights bodies and other individuals to amend their pending petitions to challenge the new legislation.
It also asked senior advocates K Parasaran and Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for Tamil Nadu, to convey to the state government to maintain law and order situation.
