The Bench comprising Chief Justice Mohan Peiris, Justice Rohini Marasinghe and Sarath Abrew dismissed the appeal filed by the trustees of the Munneswaram Sri Bhadra Kali Amman Kovil against the said order of the Court of Appeal.

The trustees of the Kovil filed an appeal before the Supreme Court against the Court of Appeal Judgment preventing animal sacrifices in any religious places of worship violating the law of the country delivered in respect of a Writ application filed against the Sri Bhadra Kali Amman Kovil in Munneswaram, Chilaw.
