Bombay HC prohibits Maharashtra Govt from permitting bullock cart races

The Bombay High Court on 16 August prohibited the state government from permitting bullock cart races in Maharashtra until rules are framed for these races.

The High Court was hearing a petition challenging the amendment to Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, allowing bullock cart races in Maharashtra.

The Maharashtra legislature had passed an amendment in this regard in the previous budget session.
