Seven people were killed as violence broke out in several parts of the country today due to anger over SC/ST Act ruling by Supreme Court.

The Centre has asked the states to take preventive steps and maintain public order to ensure safety of lives and property.

The Supreme Court has declined an urgent hearing of plea on the ruling to do with the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. Earlier today, the Centre had filed a plea in the top court seeking the restoration of the earlier status by which any offence under the SC/ST Act was made a cognizable non-bailable offence. The Supreme Court had last month barred automatic arrests on complaints filed under the SC/ST Act. It also said a preliminary inquiry must be conducted by police within seven days of an alleged incident before taking any action.
A special aircraft carrying the mortal remains of 38 Indians killed in Iraq arrived at the Amritsar International Airport today. The aircraft with the remains of the 38 slain Indians, out of 39, landed at Amritsar from Baghdad around 2:30 pm. The presumed remains of one of those killed were yet to be positively identified. Out of these, 27 belonged to Punjab while four hailed from Himachal Pradesh. The rest of the bodies would be flown to their respective places in Patna and Kolkata to be handed over to their relatives.
