SC expressed displeasure over statements made by Union mins against its verdict on gay sex.

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday expressed “displeasure” over statements made by some Union ministers including Law Minister Kapil Sibal against its verdict on gay sex, saying it is “unwarranted” and “not in good taste” while cautioning them from doing so in future.

Visibly upset after going through the statements annexed in a PIL seeking action against the Ministers, a bench headed by Chief Justice P. Sathasivam said the remarks made against the verdict are “not appreciable”.

 

“We agree that some of the statements made are not in good taste. They are holding high post and they have a responsibility. They must be cautious in making statements,” the bench, also comprising Justice Ranjan Gogoi, said.

“They have very casually made the statements. We take it as unwarranted comments,” the bench said after going through the comments made by  Sibal, Milind Deora, P. Chidambaram and also J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.

It  refused to pass any order against the leaders who were personally made party in the case.“Except showing our displeasure we cannot do any thing,” it said.
