NEW DELHI, Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- Two people were killed and scores injured Sunday as bullfighting sport - Jallikattu resumes in southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, officials said.

The otherwise banned Jallikattu restarted in the state after local and India's federal government passed an executive order regarding resumption of the tradition to invalidate the ban on it.

The executive order was passed in wake of ongoing massive protests in the state seeking lifting of ban on Jallikattu.

"In Tamil Nadu, two persons were killed when they were injured in Jallikattu in Pudukottai district," state-run broadcaster - All India Radio said. "The bull-taming sport was inaugurated by state Health and Family Welfare Minister C Vijayabhaskar."

Local media reports put the number of injured in the district at 129.

However, the main event to hold the Jallikattu that was scheduled to be inaugurated by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam at Alanganallur was cancelled after locals foiled the event. The protesters fearing legal hindrances were demanding a "permanent resolution" of the issue by bringing an amendment to the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

"The ban on Jallikattu has been removed completely. The sport will be held at Alanganallur on a date decided by local people," Panneerselvam later told reporters.

Ahead of passing the ordinance, Panneerselvam met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, following which India's federal government cleared the local government's proposal for the executive order.

India's apex court which has put ban on the sport agreed to federal government's request on Friday to defer its judgment on Jallikattu.

Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao has approved the executive order by the local governmen.
