The Madurai district administration had set up six screens for the public to view the event. The Alanganallur jallikattu’s organising committee had also announced prizes such as a car, tractor and motorbikes for the winners of the event. Organising committee member D Raghupathy had said that the event would live up to public expectations.

This was one of the first major jallikattu events to take place in the state since the Tamil Nadu government passed a Bill on January 23 revoking the ban on the bull-taming sport. On Sunday, as many as 36 people were injured after a jallikattu event was held in the state’s Avaniapuram district. Chennai’s Marina Beach was the centre for the agitation against a 2014 Supreme Court ban on the bull-taming sport, drawing more than 50,000 people over one week.
