SC begins hearing on pleas to decriminalise homosexuality


The Supreme Court today made it clear that it would not venture into the issue of marriage relating to the LGBTQ community or inheritance in live-in relationships, as it commenced a crucial hearing on a clutch of pleas seeking decriminalisation of consensual gay sex. 

The apex court said, it would only deal with the question of the validity of section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalises consensual sex between two adults of the same gender.

A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said it will examine the correctness of its 2013 verdict that had set aside the Delhi High Court judgement decriminalising gay sex under section 377.

The proceedings remained inconclusive and would continue tomorrow.
