Minor, Supreme court, Child marriage, Decision.

The interesting verdict from Supreme Court this morning held out that the intercourse with his minor wife, The Bench of Justices Madam B.Lokur and Deepak Gupta read down the exception 2 to Section 375(rape) of the Indian penal Code out.

Up to now the exception clause lead to the heinous offence raping 15 year old girl’s n the name of marriage. The men are allowed to have sex with 15 year old girls even in the tradition of marriage. But the new verdict displayed out that exception to Section 375 of IPC will be not in use at all from now.

Because the definition of ' Child ' will be given to the married 15 year old girl . The verdict thus will end the allowance of exception clause in IPC provided to have child marriages too.
