Centre leaves it to SC to examine constitutional validity of Section 377

The Centre today left it to the wisdom of the Supreme Court to examine the constitutional validity of Section 377 of the IPC criminalizing homosexuality.  

In an affidavit, the Ministry of Home Affairs said if the apex court decided to examine any question other than the constitutional validity of this Section, it would have far-reaching and wide ramifications under various other laws.

A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, which is hearing a batch of petitions challenging its 2013 verdict that had re-criminalised homosexuality. The apex court had yesterday commenced the crucial hearing on the petitions seeking decriminalisation of homosexuality.
