The Union Cabinet approved the proposal for promulgation of Andaman and Nicobar Islands (Protection of Aboriginal tribes) Amendment Regulation 2012.
To provide protection to Jarawa tribes in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, government has initiated various measures to ban videography in tribal areas.
Cracking the case of videography of Jarawa tribes, police arrested a constable who had allegedly asked the victims to dance and had shot their video.
Two new videos have emerged that provide more proof of official involvement in `human safaris` for the benefit of tourists.
Home Ministry sought a report from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands on alleged exploitation of Jarawa tribes, who
were forced to dance for food.
