Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra today indicated that the 150-year-old ban on gay sex may soon be gone. -We intend to rule, subject to arguments, that two consenting adults even if engaged in 'unnatural sex' will not be liable for prosecution for any offence,- Chief Justice Misra said. The observation of the court, which is hearing a bunch of petitions calling for decriminalization of gay sex and scrapping of the relevant law under Section 377, came after the government said it would leave the decision to the five-judge constitution bench.
