Rajya Sabha passed the SC and ST (PoA) Amendment Bill 2018
10 August 2018 Current Affairs:

Rajya Sabha passed the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill, 2018. The Bill will reverse the Supreme Court order that provides the provision for the immediate arrest of the accused booked under the SC/ST law. Now the Bill rules out any provision for anticipatory bail for a person accused of atrocities against people from SC and ST communities. 
It states that there will be no need for a preliminary enquiry to register a criminal case. An arrest under this proposed law would not be subject to any approval. An FIR will be filed based on complaints of crimes against people from Dalit and tribal communities without any questions, it entails.
