Supreme Court verdict on illegitimate affair!

The Supreme Court has pronounced its verdict on the case against illegitimate affairs that any relationship involving men and women outside their marital relationship is not illegal as long as it does not lead to suicides. In the case against section 497, the Supreme Court had pronounced a sensational verdict. It has said that a girl's husband is not her owner.


This verdict was announced by a bench including the chief justice of India Dipak Mishra, Nariman, Kanvilkar, Chandrachud, and Indhu Malhotra. Recently the Indian judiciary had given a sensational verdict against section 377 quashing it and endorsing the rights of LGBT Community.
