The Supreme Court  today said it will consider listing the Centre's review and petitions challenging the amendments to the SC/ ST Act 2018, together before an appropriate bench.  A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said it will consider and do the needful.


On Thursday, the apex court had refused to stay the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Act, 2018 which restored the provision that no anticipatory bail be granted to the accused. 

Parliament on August 9th last year had passed the bill to overturn the apex court order relating to certain safeguards against arrest under the SC and ST law.
 
On March 20, 2018, the apex court had taken note of the rampant misuse of the stringent SC/ST Act against government servants and private individuals and said there would be no immediate arrest on any complaint filed under the law.
