SC says sex with minor wife amounts to rape

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down the provision of criminal law that permitted sex by a husband with his minor wife between the age 15 to 18 years in a child marriage case. Section 375 of the Indian Panel Code made an exception on the question of sex with minor wife by the husband in child marriage cases. A bench of Justice Madan B. Lokur and Justice Deepak Gupta -- in separate but concurring judgements -- said the exception was "arbitrary, discriminatory and capricious".
