Union Law Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda has reportedly indicated that India could move towards abolishing Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which criminalises ‘unnatural sex’.

Gowda’s statement came following U.S. Supreme Court’s historic decision last week declaring same-sex marriages legal.

According to reports, Gowda said that the decision will however be taken after widespread consultations and taking all views into account.
