Earlier today, the Madras high Court granted a four-week stay on the central government's notification to ban the sale and purchase of cattle meant for slaughter objective. The student's thrashing came at roundabout the same time when the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court suspended the center's ban for four weeks.

However, a day after notifying the modifications, the ministry said that the animals for the goal of slaughter could be procured directly from the farmers at their respective farms.

Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Harsh Vardhan on May 26 said that the government has notified the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017, to ensure that the cattle are not sold for slaughter.

The HC order has come amid a raging row on the ban, with non-BJP parties and state governments of Kerala, West Bengal and Puducherry stridently opposing the Centre's recent notification.
