A bench of Justice AK Sikri and DY Chandrachud issued notice on the plea by Akhil Bharat Krishi Go Sewa Sangh after counsel Manish Singhvi contested that part of the high court verdict which allowed bringing in Maharashtra bovine meat from the states where their slaughtering is legal.

However, another group of 30 individuals also moved the top court challenging that part of the verdict which upheld the Maharashtra Animals Preservation (Amendment) Act, 2015.

The group has challenged the ban, asserting its right to choose its food.

The high court verdict had come on 6 May.
