Apex court to hear writ against SC/ST act changes next week

Apex court to hear writ against SC/ST act changes next week

New Delhi, Sep 18 (UNI) The Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved its order on the review petition filed by the Union government against the March 20, 2018, judgement that diluted provisions of stringent SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, particularly on automatic arrest of arraigned.

A three-judge bench, headed by Justice Arun Mishra, ruled that the writ petitions against the amendments would be heard separately next week.

"We are reserving our order on the review petition filed by the Central government in the SC/ST Atrocities case," Justice Mishra said.

The Centre had appealed to the apex court to re-examine its two-judge bench verdict on automatic arrest under Scheduled Castes /Scheduled Tribes Prevention of Cruelties Act.

Union of India had sought review of the 2018 judgment by which various provisions of the SC/ST Act were diluted. It had amended the law subsequently to neutralise the verdict.
