New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Thursday asked the Centre to respond to a PIL seeking a declaration recognising same-sex marriages under the Hindu Marriage Act and Special Marriage Act.

A bench of Justices Rajiv Sahai Endlaw and Asha Menon issued notice to the Centre on the plea and asked it to file a counter affidavit within four weeks.

Petitioner Abhijit Iyer Mitra has contended in the petition that marriages between same-sex couples are not possible despite the Supreme Court decriminalising consensual homosexual acts.
