MARITAL RAPE IS NOT A CRIMINAL OFFENCE, IF GIRLS AGE IS ABOVE 15: SUPREME COURT

The Supreme Court said that marital rape can’t be considered as criminal act, and said that man forcibly having sex with his wife above 15 years of age is not marital rape, due to an exception in Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) rape law, and also asked the Centre to provide data on the number of Child Marriage Prohibition Officers, appointed under the Child Marriage Prohibition Act, 2006 as well as the number of prosecutions that have been instituted over the last three years under the Act.
