Army wants homosexuality & adultery to be punishable: report

Oct 31, 2019 23:27 IST

According to a report by news agency PTI, the Army wants the homosexuality and adultery to be kept punishable and has reportedly approached the Defence Ministry for it, nearly a year after the Supreme Court decriminalised them. Reports added that the Army Act had provisions under which its personnel were charged for homosexuality and adultery, but now they would be charged for it under a different section. Reports say quoting sources that keeping both the acts punishable would act as a deterrent, otherwise there would be severe discipline issues and it would create a command and control problem in the Army.
