Madurai: The rural police arrested 200 Naam Tamilar Katchi cadres including their leader Seeman near Kumaram village near Madurai when they attempted to visit Palamedu to conduct jallikattu violating the apex court ban. However the police released them in the evening.

On Tuesday, a jallikattu temple bull belongs to Kumaram village. The villagers paid respects before they buried the animal.
