In Morigaon district’s Boidya Bori area, 48 pairs of buffalos participated in the event
With thousands in attendance, the fight continued from noon till dusk.
Prior to the ban imposed by the Supreme Court in 2014, bullfights were one of the prime attractions of the Magh Bihu festivities
The celebrations now a day have gone low key due to the restrictions.
There were reports of buffalo fights being organized at Ahatguri in the Morigaon district too.
Earlier, though they're used to be organising committees for the events, with SC ruling, villagers now a day organize such events by their own
