New Delhi, June 15, 2017: The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a notice to the Centre on a PIL filed by a Hyderabad based NGO on notification banning sale and purchase of cattle at animal markets for slaughter.
Issuing notice, the vacation bench of Justice R.K. Agrawal and Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul gave the central government two weeks’ time to respond and posted the matter for hearing on July 11.
The court directed the listing of the matter on July 11.
As Additional Solicitor General P.S. Narasimha wanted to make a statement on the intent behind the two notifications issued on May 23, the bench asked him to say all this in response.
The petitioner has also challenged the other notification regulating the transportation of cattle.
