Adultery not a crime, says Supreme Court

The Supreme Court Thursday delivered its historic judgment on the constitutional validity of the penal provision of adultery, saying the Section 497 (Adultery) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) is "unconstitutional". A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra in a unanimous judgment said the beauty of the Constitution is that it includes "the I, me and you". The other justices on the bench include RF Nariman, AM Khanwilkar, DY Chandrachud and Indu Malhotra.
