PETA representative Manilal Vallikatte had  filed an appeal in the Supreme Court on September 23 alleging that the ordinance  permitting Kamala was  against the law. The case is being heard by a three member bench including Chief Justice Deepak Mishra, Justice  A M Kanvilkar and Justice D Y Chandrachud.

The President of India had  already issued an ordinance permitting Kambala and a Gazette Notification has also been issued on August 20 and the same will be effective till January 20. The Kambala Bill is already approved by  the Cabinet and will be tabled during the Belagavi session.

Meanwhile the Vijaya Vikrama Kambala Samithi of Uppinangady has decided to file an Affidavit in the Supreme Court in support of Kambala.
