Taapsee Pannu and Sona Mahapatra seem disgraced by the recent judgement of Chhatisgarh High Court. It was the case of a man against who his wife filed a case for marital rape and harassing her. The court expressed its views after looking at the intricacies of the entire matter that sexual intercourse with a wife is not considered rape even if it is done by force. The 37-year-old husband married the woman in 2017 in Changorabhata in Raipur. Few days after their marriage woman’s husband and two-reportedly demanded dowry from her and pressurized her to arrange from her family. In doing so, they even harassed her while she accuses her husband of raping her.
In response, the woman filed a complaint against her husband and the two relatives. Justice NK Chandravanshi gave the judgement on 23rd August commenting that, “Counsel for the applicants submits that the complainant and the applicant No. 1 (man) are legally wedded wife and husband, therefore, none of the ingredients to constitute the offence punishable under Sections 376 and 377 of the IPC are spelt out against him, because, in India, marital rape is not recognised and the same is not an offence in view of Exception II of Section 375 of the IPC.”
The judgement was seen impartial towards the woman which agitated actress Taapsee Pannu and Sona Mohapatra. Taapsee on Twitter”Bas ab yehi sunna baaki tha (This was all that was left to hear).” retweeted the news from a channel and wrote, “. While Sona retweeted, “The sickness I feel reading this #India, is beyond anything I can write here.”
