how can be a women accused in a case of 376(2)(n)

A friend of mine was arrested with her family and now the case is registered against them but how can a woman be accused of 376(2)(n)

Hello Sir/Ma’am,

I am assuming you are referring to s.375 of the Indian Penal Code. Under the Indian Penal Code 1860 or under any law in India, rape can only be committed by a man on a woman. Section 376 states punishment for rape and since rape cannot be committed by a woman, hence I believe that there might have been some confusion as it is not possible to charge a woman and her family u/s 376 although. Woman can be a victim under this section, but she cannot possibly be an accused.

I recommend you get some clarification as to the section she and her family is charged with.

Hope this helps.

the case was filed against her brother and she and her mother is also registered into it
the charges are under 376(2)(n), 354,323,294,506 and sec 34

Dear querist,

The woman might have charged for other sections in FIR and woman might have facilitated or have helped to commite the crime.
