Description
The Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989 is a special legislation to check and deter crimes against member belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. There has been increase in number of complaints made by these classes of people to the police and the courts. In a recent decision rendered by the Full Bench of the Hon'ble High Court of A.P. in Yannam Satyanarayana vs. State of A.P., 2006 (1) ALD (Crl.) 605 (A.P.) = 2006 (2) ALT (Crl.) 223 (F.B.) (A.P.) it was held that Rule 7 of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Rules, 1995 is not mandatory but only a directory one, overruling the decision in Viswanadhula Chittibabu vs. State of A.P., 2002 (2) ALD (Crl.) 206 (A.P.) = 2002 (4) ALT 456 (D.B.) wherein it was held that the provisions of Rule 7 of the Rules are mandatory and infractions of Rule 7 of the Rules are mandatory and infraction thereof makes the investigation wholly illegal. In the present edition we have taken care to see that the mistakes are rectified and we have also incorporated the necessary rules and the latest case law on the subject, at the appropriate places. We hope that the present edition will be more useful to the Bar, Bench and the litigant public alike and we also invite further suggestions if any for further improvement of the future editions.
