SC stays Orissa HC order banning animal sacrifice

New Delhi, Oct 19 (TIWN) The Supreme Court has stayed the Orissa High Court order, which termed animal sacrifice a superstition and banned it during the Chatar Yatra festival in Kalahandi district.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde and comprising Justices A S Bopanna and Ramasubramanian said: "Issue notice. There shall be an interim stay of the order in the meanwhile." The order came on a plea filed by Bhawani Shankar Nial challenging the judgement by the High Court in January this year.

The High Court had said that from Wikipedia, it appears that Chatar Yatra is a traditional festival celebrated by the people of Kalahandi district, Odisha (Orissa) every year.
