NEW DELHI, July 10 (Agencies): The Supreme Court on Tuesday commenced a crucial hearing on a clutch of petitions seeking decriminalisation of consensual sex between two adults of the same gender.

A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said it will also examine the correctness of its 2013 verdict that had set aside the Delhi high court judgment decriminalising gay sex.

The apex court had in 2013 restored sexual relationship between persons of the same sex as a criminal offence by setting aside the 2009 Delhi high court judgment that had held as unconstitutional Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. During the hearing on Tuesday, the bench, also comprising Justices R F Nariman, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Indu Malhotra, said it would examine the constitutional validity of Section 377 of the IPC and the fundamental rights of the LGBTQ (Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community.
