Centre seeks stay on Supreme Court’s order on SC/ST Act

Venugopal also pointed out that the SC/ST verdict had resulted in loss of life and the case be referred to a larger bench.

The Centre had moved the apex court on April 2 seeking review of its judgement by which safeguards were put on the provisions for immediate arrest under the Scheduled Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.
