NGO Naz Foundation Tuesday moved the Supreme Court seeking a review of its ruling over Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, according to which homosexuality or same gender sex between two adults is a criminal offense. In a jolt to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, the apex court held Dec 11 that consensual sex between adults of the same gender was illegal and an offence according to the existing law. The central government has already filed a review plea on the apex court ruling. The apex court set aside the 2009 Delhi High Court verdict that decriminalised homosexuality. The high court ruling had come on a public interest litigation by Naz Foundation.
