This judgment disposes two consolidated Petitions, namely, Petition number 150 of 2016 (herein after referred to as the first Petition) and Petition Number 234 of 2016 (herein after referred to as the second Petition). The common thread in the two Petitions is that they both challenge the constitutionality of sections 162(a) (c) and 165 of the Penal Code. [1] Additionally, the first Petition assaults the said provisions on grounds of vagueness and uncertainty. 2. The second Petition seeks a declaration that sexual and gender minorities are entitled to the right to the highest attainable standards including the right to health care services as guaranteed in Article 43 of the Constitution. The Petitioners also seek an order directing the State to develop policies and adopt practices prohibiting discrimination - Page 2/84

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
