section 497

Does scrapped section 497 has retrospective effect ?

In the 1954, the adultery law (section 497) was revalidated by the SC, and was scrapped on 26-09-2018, but not with the retrospective effect. Now, the question is that how can the trial court sentence the guilty in the cases of 497 IPC, prior to 26-09-2018.

  The Supreme Court on Thursday struck down the adultery law, pertaining to Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 198 of Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), as unconstitutional through a unanimous judgement.
