Bharat Bandh LIVE Updates: Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989 or SC / ST Act protects marginalized and marginalized communities from tyranny and discrimination. The objective of this Act is to create an environment in the society for the Dalit community so that they can live a respectful life. However, on March 20, 2018, the Supreme Court expressed concern over the misuse of the Act and prohibited the immediate arrest of the accused as soon as the FIR was lodged under this law. Along with this, the court also provided pre-bail bail to avoid arrest. The Supreme Court said in its decision that government employees cannot be arrested without the permission of any competent authority. The Court also said in its order that the arrest of the common citizen under this act should be after an investigation of the case.
