A Bill aimed at checking communal violence more effectively and to ensure stricter punishment for the perpetrators is likely to be introduced soon, Government said today.

The Minority Affairs Minister, Mr Salman Khurshid, said the Government has received many significant inputs in this regard and the introduction of the proposed Communal Violence Bill is “in its last few steps”.

“As far as the Communal Violence Bill is concerned, it has gone many miles ahead (from what was earlier proposed). It is in its last few steps. A great deal of input has been provided. A very attractive Communal Violence Bill is to soon come before Parliament after the Cabinet's approval,” Mr Khurshid said, delivering his keynote address at the annual conference of the State Minorities Commissions.
