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

The Supreme Court said that the forced marital intercourse and sexual acts cannot be considered as a criminal offence, and said that based on Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), the intercourse or sexual act by a man with his wife, not below 15 years, is not a rape, and asked the government to provide details of the number of child marriage prohibition officers and prosecutions initiated under the Child Marriage Act in the past three years.
