SC to review Section 377

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

A three-judge bench of Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice of Misra, on Monday said it would reconsider Section 377 of the (IPC), which criminalises homosexuality.

The matter will now be referred to a larger bench to reexamine the Constitutional validity of Section 377.

Earlier in 2009, the High had decriminalised Section 377, but the order was later set aside by a Supreme-bench.

The controversial Section 377 bans sexual activity that is 'against the order of nature'.
