Supreme Court says “No Changes in SC/ST Act”

Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected to keep in abeyance its earlier order preventing automatic arrests on complaints filed under the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.

On 20 March, a bench comprising justices U.U. Lalit and A.K. Goel held a public servant could be arrested only after approval of the appointing authority and of a non-public servant after approval by the senior superintendent of police if considered necessary, for reasons recorded.

Dalit groups Protests across the country

The court, showing no inclination to stay its earlier order on the SC/ST Act, asked the parties to file written submissions within two days. The matter will be taken up after 10 days. The Dalit groups will protests across the country, with violence on 2 April.

Union home minister Rajnath Singh denied

“Through the House, I want to assure the people that there has been no dilution in whatsoever by my Government; rather, after coming to power and examining the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act, we have taken a decision to strengthen it,” Singh said in Lok Sabha on the violence during Bharat Bandh.
