Supreme Court no for interim stay on Kambala buffalo race in Karnataka

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today refused to grant Karnataka’s buffalo race, Kambala, an interim stay.

A bench comprising A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, however, fixed March 12 for a final hearing on the plea by animal rights body PETA in the matter.

Senior advocate Siddharth Luthra, appearing for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said the state ordinance allowing Kambala has lapsed and the buffalo race has no legal sanction at present.
