A Delhi Court dismissed the bail plea of a man who was accused of raping and forcing his wife to indulge in unnatural sex with him. The Court said that women need legal protection from marital rape and all kinds of “Sexual perversity” by their husbands.
The woman, a resident of Delhi, alleged in her FIR that her husband used to rape and commit unnatural sex with her. She said that he used to show her adult videos and also physically hurt her by biting her.
Additional Sessional Judge Kamini Lau said that just because he was the victim’s husband, does not mitigate his offence.
The Court said, “Women have to be protected from all kinds of sexual perversity and merely because the complainant happens to be the wife of the accused, it does not in any manner mitigate the offence keeping in view the nature of the allegations involved”.
