NEW DELHI: India’s top court on Tuesday stayed a government decision to allow a popular bull running festival to go ahead after animal rights activists challenged the move.

With just days to go before the start of the festival, the court said it would issue a temporary stay order on the government’s decision to reverse a 2014 ban.
