marital rape is still not criminalized in india. There is no direct judgment so far, but some observations in some judgments has been made about marital rape ,but that won't amount to law as not directed to be followed.
My friend is the victim of domestic violence. She has lodged the complaint against her husband but there is no complaint registered against her husband instead 7-8 counseling sessions are to be attended. After first counseling her husband again beaten her and inspite of no physical contact between them since last 2 yrs bcuz of this physical torture, he then tried forcefully to have s*x after beating her. Again she lodges complaint but according to police rules or law there will be no action against husband till 7 or 8 counseling will be done in a almost more then one year.
