India Supreme Court Declines Request to Review Ruling That Criminalized Homosexuality

Court recently ruled a colonial-era law should still be applied to gay sex


Gay sex remains a criminal offence in India after a controversial ruling today by the republic's Supreme Court.

Activists had asked for a review of the court's earlier verdict to reinstate a 153-year-old law that criminalises homosexuality and makes it punishable by up to life imprisonment.
