The Apex Court
of Country Supreme Court
struck down the provision of criminal law that legalized sex by a spouse with his minor wife between the age of 15 to 18 years in a child marriage case. The apex court
said the exception in the rape law was contrary to the philosophy of other statutes and violates the bodily integrity of a girl child. The court
also ruled that the exception given to this is violative of Article 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution.
