Kerala government decided to put Kerala Police Act amendment on hold due to severe criticism.

In a statement, Kerala Chief Minister, Pinarayi Vijayan said that "with the announcement of the amendment, different views arose from different quarters.

In this situation, it's not intended to amend the law." Speaking on it, Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Sitaram Yechury said, "Kerala Chief Minister has said that amendments to Kerala State Police Act won't be implemented.
