Lok Sabha passed the SC/ST (PoA) Amendment Bill, 2018
07 August 2018 Current Affairs:

The Lok Sabha passed the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill, 2018. The Bill bypasses the recent ruling of the Supreme Court laying down procedures for arrests under the Act. The Bill will be now passed to the Rajya Sabha. The Bill inserts three sections 18A (1) (a), 18A (1) (b) and 18A (2) in the 1989 Act. 
Section 18A (1) (a) of the Bill says Preliminary enquiry shall not be required for registration of an FIR against any person.
Section 18A (1) (b) of the Bill says the investigating officer shall not require approval for the arrest, if necessary, of any person against whom an accusation of having committed an offence under this Act has been made and no procedure, other than that provided under this Act or the Code, shall apply. 
Section 18A (2) of the Bill says the provision of section 438 of the Code shall not apply to a case under this Act, notwithstanding any judgment or order or direction of any Court.
