Moodbidri: Encouraged by the success of the Jallikattu movement in Tamil Nadu, organisers of Kambala (buffalo race) in Karnataka on Sunday decided to hold the traditional sport in Moodbidri in Dakshina Kannada district on January 28 by defying ban order. The decision was taken at a meeting held by the Kambala committee at Moodbidri, its president Ashok Rai said.
The High Court of Karnataka had passed an interim order in November last year, staying Kambala on a petition filed by PETA. The next hearing is on January 30, he told PTI. "We have decided to conduct Kambala races on January 28 before the matter comes up for hearing in the court," he said.
All Kambala organisers will take buffaloes to Swaraj Maidan in Moodbidri. Later, they will proceed to Kadalakere Nisargadhama, the venue for Kambala. The traditional buffalo race will be held from 11.30 am till evening, he added.
