For the second time, the Supreme Court refused to stay amendments to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, which rules out any provision for anticipatory bail for the accused.
A bench said it would hear a batch of petitions challenging the amendments to the Act along with the Centre’s review plea for final disposal. The petitions have sought the declaration of the new amendments to the SC/ST Act as ultra vires.
