2. The Counsel for Christian intervenors submits that #377IPC is Constitutionally valid. He submits that he has not been able to find the meaning of "order of nature". Justice Nariman observes that perhaps "order of nature" could mean "that which leads to procreation".
3. Justice Chandrachud weighs in on the meaning of "carnal intercourse" and asks what is the need for the word "carnal". He notes that since "carnal" means lustful and "intercourse" itself assumes existence of lust, why add "carnal" to "intercourse" #377IPC.
