India reinstates law banning gay sex

India’s Supreme Court has ruled that a colonial-era law criminalising homosexuality which was abolished in 2009 will be reinstated.

The Supreme Court said that the 2009 High Court decision was unconstitutional, and that it was for politicians and not courts to decide on the matter.
