SC refuses to stay its order on SC/ST Act

227

After hearing the review petition filed by the central government following the North India wide dalit protests, the Supreme Court today refused to stay its order on SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

Few days back, the Supreme Court had removed the provision for immediate arrest in cases filed under the act.

The SC ruling triggered massive protests by dalit organisations across the country.
