Child-rights panel of delhi moved the Supreme Court opposing a high court ruling decriminalising homosexuality.

Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights in its lawsuit pointed out that the laws of the land prevent men below the age of 21 from marrying women and even countries like the United Kingdom permit homosexuality between adults above the age of 21.

Justice BN Agrawal and Justice GS Singhvi issued notices to the union government and the civil society Naz Foundation, seeking their stand on the Delhi HC verdict.

The high court had decriminalised gay sex between two consenting adults, acting on a lawsuit by the NGO Naz Foundation. The union government has so far not challenged the verdict.

Appearing for DCPCR, former additional solicitor general Amrendra Saran sought immediate suspension of the high court ruling, but the court slated the matter for hearing on first October.
