Reportedly as Tamilnadu’s Jallikattu season comes to an end, the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court has ordered the Chief Secretary to consider providing insurance for the participants of the sport from next year. Meanwhile the order came on a Public Interest Litigation filed by a Madurai based advocate Muthukumar.



Furthermore in his petition, he had stated that Tamilnadu hosts Jallikattu in many towns and villages and that the sport ends up injuring or killing people every year accidentally. Accordingly the petitioner submitted that chariot festivals in temples are conducted after taking a Public Risk Liability Non-Industrial Insurance policy to help those who accidentally get hurt by the festival and a similar procedure must be followed while conducting Jallikattu as well.

Moreover the council also assured that in the future, permission to conduct Jallikattu will be granted only if the organizers submit the copy of the policy taken for the entire event. Reports added that Jallikattu, which was earlier banned by the Supreme Court, was permitted after the Tamilnadu government passed an ordinance in 2017 in the wake of massive protests.
