In my previous two blogs I wrote about the provisions of offences against women in IPC and some provisions are still remaining so I’m discussing here in brief. You can find it all in detailed sections of India Penal Code,1860.
I’m continuing with the offence of acid attack.
There was no separate legislation to deal with acid attacks before the passing of The
Criminal Law (Amendment) Act. 2013. The offence was registered under Sections 320, 322, 325, 326 and 307 of the Indian Penal Code (I.P.C).
Now we have two different sections dealing with acid attack. These sections are gender neutral, meaning that victims of any gender are protected under these sections.
326A. Voluntarily causing grievous
hurt by use of acid, etc.-
This section deals with the cases of acid attacks and specifies punishment for such a crime.
Punishment: Imprisonment for not less than 10 years to Life with Fine paid to the victim.
Section 326 B: Voluntarily throwing or attempting to throw acid, etc.
Punishment : It shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than five years but which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine.
The basic difference between Sections 326A and 326B of IPC is the presence of actual injury under Section 326A.
Explanation 1 of section 326B explains “acid” in detail for the purpose of both sections.
By the amendment of 2013 a new clause also added in section 100 of IPC that is 7th clause which provides right to private defence of the body, to the voluntary causing of death or of any other harm to the assailant, if the offence is an act of throwing or administering acid or an attempt to throw or administer acid which may reasonably cause the apprehension that gravious hurt will otherwise be the consequence of such act.
Now I’m coming to the sexual offences. These offences are given from the section 375 to 375 E of the IPC. We got these sections in present form after the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act 2013 and Criminal Law (Amendment) Act 2018.
Section 375 : Rape
If we go throughout this section we can see that rape is an offence which is gender specific which means rape can be committed only by a man and only against a woman.
In the definition of rape there are 4 clauses are given which cover all the acts, if any one of them committed in any of the further giving 7 circumstances constitute offence of rape.
It means after the amendment of 2013 the offence of rape is no more restricted to the penile vaginal intercourse.
Section 376 Punishment for rape :
1.If the age of victim is not under the age of sixteen years, it shall be published with rigorous imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than ten years, but which may extend to imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable to fine.
2. If it covers under (a to n) special cases, it shall be punished with rigorous imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than ten years, but which may extend to imprisonment for life, which shall mean imprisonment for the remainder of that person’s natural life, and shall also be liable to fine.
3.If the victim is under sixteen years of age, it shall be punished with rigorous imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than twenty years, but which may extend to imprisonment for life, which shall mean imprisonment for the remainder of that person’s natural life, and shall also be liable to fine.
Section 376 D: Gang rape:
This section is also inserted by the amendment of 2013. Which can be understood by its ingredients they are:
1.There must be a group of persons,
2. They are acting in furtherance of a common intention and
3. All or some of them committed rape.
Then it shall be deemed to be an offence of gang rape .
It means for this offence it is not required that the victim must have been raped by each and every person of the group.
Punishment for gang rape : it shall be punished with rigorous Imprisonment for 20 years to Imprisonment which may extend to Natural-Life and Fine paid to the victim.
Section 376 DA : punishment for gang rape on a woman under sixteen years of age: Imprisonment for Natural-Life and fine paid to the victim.
Section 376 DB : Punishment for gang rape on woman under twelve years of age:
Imprisonment for life which shall mean imprisonment for the remainder of the at person’s natural life and with fine paid to the victim or with death.
In India, a wife is presumed to deliver perpetual consent to have sex with her husband after entering into marital relations so that IPC does not criminalise the marital Rape.
We can see exception no 2 of the of the section 375 that is: Sexual intercourse or sexual acts by a man with his own wife, the wife not being under fifteen years of age, is not rape.
It means for the make liable for this offence, the age of his wife must be under the fifteen years of age.
But in the year of 2017 in case of
Independent Thought v. Union of India a division bench of the Supreme Court of India read down Exception 2 to Section 375, Indian Penal Code (hereinafter, IPC), which now stands thus altered,
“Sexual intercourse by a man with his wife, the wife not being less than 18 years of age, is not rape”.
Section 376 A: punishment for committing an offence of rape and inflicting injury which causes death or causes the woman to be in a persistent vegetative state: it shall be rigorous Imprisonment for 20 years to Imprisonment for Natural-Life or Death.
Section 376 B: punishment for sexual intercourse by husband upon his wife during separation: it shall be imprisonment of either description for a term of 2 to 7 years of and Fine.
Section 376 C : Punishment for Sexual intercourse by a person in authority: it shall be rigorous Imprisonment for 5 to 10 years and Fine.
Section 376 E: Whoever has been previously convicted of an offence punishable under section 376 or section 376A or section1 376AB or section 376D or section 376DA or section 376DB and is subsequently convicted of an offence punishable under any of the said sections shall be punished with imprisonment for life which shall mean imprisonment for the remainder of that person’s natural life, or with death.
For the purpose of sexual offences in the section of 376 an important explanation no.2 has been added which explains the meaning of consent. And with this addition in the Indian Evidence Act 1872,
section 53A (Evidence of character or previous sexual experience not relevant in certain cases) and section 114A ( Presumption as to absence of consent in certain prosecution for rape) have also been added.
We should have to aware about some other provisions under IPC which give protection from disclose the identity and right of treatment to the rape victim:
Section 228 A of IPC:
Disclosure of identity of the victim of certain offences, etc : If provision of this section is not followed it shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to two years and shall also be liable to fine.
Section 166 B of IPC Punishment for non treatment of victim : Whoever, being in charge of a hospital, public or private, whether run by the Central Government, the State Government, local bodies or any other person, contravenes the provisions of section 357C of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year or with fine or with both.

Here I’m discussing few other offences mainly occuring against women’s Or girl child. beginning from where it all started.
Female foeticide is not hidden to us. It is a curse in today’s India. It is separately a very wide topic to discuss, like from history to present conditions , what are the so called reasons behind this curse and the different steps of government to overcome from this curse. But I’m referring here some sections of IPC (312 to 318)
THE CAUSING OF MISCARRIAGE, OF INJURIES TO UNBORN CHILDREN, OF THE EXPOSURE OF INFANTS, AND OF THE CONCEALMENT OF BIRTHS – INDIAN PENAL CODE (IPC)
As we can see, this heading is not specifically covering offences against women. Although, these sections is not discriminatory between male and female child but if we go in the deep, we can find these offences is generally committed against female child.
According to the Population Research Institute (PRI), around 15.8 million girls went missing in India due to prenatal sex selection between 1990 and 2018. Approximately 550,000 girls went missing in 2018 alone, PRI said.
Our Indian government passed the Preconception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act, 1994 making sex-selective abortion illegal. However, merely making it illegal did not stop it.
(For more information visit https://pndt.gov.in/)
We have also The Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971 allows for abortions where pregnancy carries the risk of grave injury to women’s health, therefore, making Ultrasound machines continued to be widely available throughout the country.
In the ground reality, somehow these offences is being committed in our society.
If people don’t miscarriage ,child is killed.
After giving birth Child is subjected to exposure and abandonment.
So we also have provisions for punishments in IPC for the related offences.
Section 312. miscarriage:
Whoever voluntarily causes a woman with child to miscarry, shall, if such miscarriage be not caused in good faith for the purpose of saving the life of the woman, be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both; and, if the woman be quick with child, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine.
A woman who causes herself to miscarry, is within the meaning of this section
Section 313. Causing miscarriage without woman’s consent :
It shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.
Section 314. Death caused by act done with intent to cause miscarriage :
Whoever, with intent to cause the miscarriage of a woman with child, does any act which causes the death of such woman, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine;
If act done without woman’s consent- And if the act is done without the consent of the woman, shall be punished either with imprisonment for life, or with the punishment above mentioned.
It is not essential to this offence that the offender should know that the act is likely to cause death.
Sections 315 & 316- envisage the provisions relating to injury caused to an unborn child: They cover the situations where an act is done with the intention of preventing such child to be born alive; or causing the death of a child who’s quick unborn by an act amounting to culpable homicide.
Section 315. Act done with intent to prevent child being born alive or to cause it to die after birth :
If such act be not caused in good faith for the purpose of saving the life of the mother, be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, or with fine, or with both.
Section 316. Causing death of quick unborn child by act amounting to culpable homicide.
It shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.
Section 317. Exposure and abandonment of child under twelve years, by parent or person having care of it :
This section deals with the offence of exposing a child under twelve years of age with an intention of wholly abandoning it, done by a parent or any person having care of it. An offender under this Section shall be liable with imprisonment of upto 7 years/fine/both.
Section 318. Concealment of birth by secret disposal of dead body :
Whoever, by secretly burying or otherwise disposing of the death body of a child whether such child die before or after or during its birth, intentionally conceals or endeavours to conceal the birth of such child, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both.
Here we can see these sections is not discriminate between the legitimate child and illegitimate child.
Sometimes these offices is committed against the will of women, especially in the case of illegitimate child .
This is not enough. For marriage and after marriage demand of dowry and cruality is also done with women.
For preventing, we have DOWRY PROHIBITION ACT, 1961.
We also have punishments in relation to some offences in IPC.
Section 304-B (Dowry Death)
This section was added in act in 1986.According to this if a woman dies within seven years of marriage by any burns or bodily injury or otherwise than normal circumstances and it was revealed that before her marriage she was exposed to cruelty or harassment by her husband or any other relative of the husband in connection to demand dowry then the death of the woman will be considered as a dowry death.
In this section burden of proof is on the accused.
Section 113B of the Indian Evidence Act,1872 states the presumption as to dowry death.
Punishment: Minimum sentence of imprisonment for seven years or a maximum sentence of imprisonment for life.
Section 498A. Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty :- The object of this section (introduce in 1983 ) to protect married women from being subjected to cruelty by the husband or his relatives for demanding dowry.
Punishment: Imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine.
We should also read Section 113-A of the Indian Evidence Act,1872 Presumption as to abetment of suicide by a married woman.
Section 498: Enticing or taking away or detaining with criminal intent a married woman.—
Whoever takes or entices away any woman who is the wife of any other man, from that man, or from any person having the care of her on behalf of that man, with intent that she may have illicit intercourse with any person, or conceals or detains with that intent any such woman, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both.
Section 493 :Cohabitation caused by a man deceitfully inducing a belief of lawful marriage
In this section if a man by deceit causing a woman not lawfully married to him to believe that she is lawfully married to him and to cohabit with him in that belief it is a offence.
Punishment: It shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.
(For detailing of sections refer http://legislative.gov.in/actsofparliamentfromtheyear/indian-penal-code)
In the next blog I’ll be continued discussing this series of offences and conclude it.
For other women’s law (other than IPC)do visit https://monkeycapblog.wordpress.com/2020/10/05/womens-law-in-india-till-2000/
In this modern society in the one side where we are talking about women’s rights, we are looking for the true meaning of feminism and on the other side we can’t ignore the rising number of offences (specially sexual offences) and cruality against women .
It is not hidden from us how the people are raising Voice to make more effective & strict laws but if we go throughout our existing legislations we can find more than sufficient existing laws & punishments.
In the court you are not permitted to plead ignorance as a defense but practically there is exist the lack of knowlegde and it is obvious in this country( National Statistical Office (NSO) 2017-18, India’s average literacy rate is 77.7%.) .
If we spread awareness about these legislations and punishments so people will be aware about these kind of acts and may think ones before the committing these type of offences and on other side victims will be aware about their protective rights.
I am referring here some relevant sections of Indian Penal Code, 1860 :-
Section 354: Assault of criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty.
This section makes it a special crime to use force against a woman, or even threaten to use force, if the intention is to ‘outrage her modesty’. It treats it more seriously than normal and criminal force by allowing the police to make arrests for such crimes without a warrant.
Punishment: Imprisonment for the time of between one and five years along with a fine.
Section 354A : Sexual harassment and punishment for sexual harassment

There is a separate law on sexual harassment at workplaces – The Sexual Harassment of women at workplace (prevention, prohibition and redressal) Act and Rules 2013.
Section 354B: Assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to disrobe.

Section 354D: Stalking
According to Section 354D IPC, Stalking is Continuously following a woman or contacting her,Either online or in person. Where she has clearly shown she doesn’t want the attention. It is punished by imprisonment for three years for a first offence, and five years for repeat offences with fine.
Sometimes we face this type of offences but we ignore.This is how we indirectly support those unwanted elements of society and later they commit more serious crimes.
Section 360 :Kidnapping from India Section.
361 :Kidnapping from lawful guardianship.
These sections are not only for the protection of women.
Section 363 : Punishment for kidnapping

Punishment : It shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.

women’s, one of the most strongest living being on earth emotionally, mentally and sometimes physically too. They carry within themselves huge amount of energy to do all the things which would impossible for single individual to do. they are playing multiple roles at the same time she’s mother, daughter, wife, teacher, home-maker and leader too. but ,despite all this she’s the one who suffers the most. her sufferings started from very beginning means from her birth(i.e. Female Foeticide ) and she suffers till she left her body(i.e. sati). This suffering is not new but is as old as the existence of civilizations. though life is changing and India is developing yet women’s are suffering this can be easily seen in the stats provided by NCRB, which is increasing year by year and hence laws are need to be make more stringent and women’s were made more aware about these laws. here are some statutes already existing.

PUBG (player unknown battleground) is not just a game for Indians, it is much more than that. the game is for someone’s reason for joy, for some its a way to become cool, for some its way to relax and stay connected with friends and for few its a career choice. Pubg is so common and famous in India that it only has potential to make person win election. This game has huge number of followers but at the same time it has hatters to who are the parents of those followers. it is so common that you can easily find a player in any colony of India. as per the gadgets NDTV Indian player constitutes about 24% of the total i.e 175 million installs, further India constitutes about 5% of the revenue of Pubg mobile i.e. 100 million dollars from India in 2019.
Now the government has banned Pubg mobile for Indians the reason is many one of them is clashes between India and China and the developer of Pubg mobile is Chinese company so, this will have effect monetary terms however government has said that the information used will be effecting sovereignty and security of India, Defence and public order and that’s the reason for ban for all other applications too. the other reason is to promote self reliance and the make in India ideology.
since Pubg mobile is banned in India people are looking for alternatives but it should kept in mind that PUBG PC is still in operation and you can still play It in PC. well everyone is looking towards FAU-G as alternative lets hope for the best from FAU-G wish it will stand on our Indians expectations.

During the tension at galwan valley between INDIA and CHINA, Indians are desperately demanding boycotting Chinese products and services. Including websites and applications such as tik tok which recently, trending because of Youtube V/S Tik Tok war in India. Now, Indian government on 29 june 2020 has banned 59 Chinese applications after getting credible information about the apps being used for breaching privacy and security of citizens of India. also it is also provided under press release that these listed apps are somehow dangerous to sovereignty and integrity of the India, defence of India, security of state and public order.
so, from where does govt. get power to restrict our right to access information guaranteed by Article 19 of constitution.
firstly, from constitution itself under Article 19(6) which provides restriction on freedom provided under Article 19.
secondly, The Information and Technology act,2000 which was enacted for punishing offences related to computers and internet. it has only one major amendment that is in year 2008, adding various new offences. Indian govt. has banned these apps on androids and ios by invoking their power under section 69(A) of the IT act,2000 which provides as follows-
69 A Power to issue directions for blocking for public access of any information through any computer resource. –
(1) Where the Central Government or any of its officer specially authorised by it in this behalf is satisfied that it is necessary or expedient so to do, in the interest of sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of the State, friendly relations with foreign States or public order or for preventing incitement to the commission of any cognizable offence relating to above, it may subject to the provisions of sub-section (2) for reasons to be recorded in writing, by order, direct any agency of the Government or intermediary to block for access by the public or cause to be blocked for access by the public any information generated, transmitted, received, stored or hosted in any computer resource.
so, under this law Indian govt. act and the press release is attached here with reason and list of apps https://pib.gov.in/PressReleasePage.aspx?PRID=1635206
