Section 375 (rape) of the IPC provides exemption from the offense of rape by a person who has physical relations with his wife, provided the wife is more than 15 years of age. Before a bench of Justices Rajiv Shakdher and C Harishankar, he argued, “If the provision conveys the same message, is it not a fundamental attack on the existence of a wife or a woman?”

Why is rape not called rape?

Amicus Curie said, ‘Can anyone argue that it is reasonable, just and fair that a wife should be deprived of the right to call rape a rape in today’s time, rather she should be punished under Section 498A of the IPC (from a married woman). Relief under cruelty) should be sought.
