On May 7, the apex court had banned using bulls for Jallikattu events or bullock-cart races across the country and hoped Parliament would elevate the rights of animals to that of constitutional rights. The court had directed governments and Animal Welfare Board of India to take steps to prevent infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering on animals, saying all living creatures, including animals, have inherent dignity and a right to live peacefully and right to protect their well-being.
