Gay travel in India: bad idea?

So the Indian Supreme Court has made gay sex illegal in India again, punishable by up to life imprisonment. Western governments are duly amending their travel warnings. But is there any realistic threat to gay foreigners?

Apparently there have been no convictions of gay people for 20 years, but the law is mainly used to harrass people. My guess is this isn't really an issue, but a local said that the climate there now means that gay foreigners will become a special target for police (presumably looking for bribes). Does that sound true? If so, what are the risks?
