The Indian Supreme Court has put on hold a recent government order lifting a ban on Jallikattu, a form of bullfighting which has been popular for centuries in the state of Tamil Nadu.

The order came after activists challenged the government decision on grounds of cruelty to animals.

Tuesday's court order means there will be no Jallikattu festival this year.

The Jallikattu festival was scheduled to begin on 15 January across the state. No events were held last year.

At the annual festival held in January, thousands of men chase the bulls to grab prizes tied to their horns.
