शादीशुदा महिला के गैर-मर्द के साथ संबंध बनाने को लेकर सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने ल...

Once again, the Supreme Court took a big decision. The Supreme Court has termed the legal provision to make relation with a married woman, ie, to commit adultery, as unconstitutional. Chief Justice Justice Khannvilkar has clarified that, 'we give an indefensible agreement on Section 497 of IPC and Section 198 of Criminal Offenses Code.'

While hearing a case, Chief Justice Deepak Mishra, Justice AM Khanwilkar, Justice RF Nariman, Justice Indu Malhotra and Justice Chandrachud said in their verdict that the Indian Penal Code related to incest, ie Article 497 of the IPC is against the Constitution. It should be known that in earlier relations there was a provision for punishment only to men.

In fact, NRI Josef Shine, living in Italy outside the country, filed a public interest petition in the Supreme Court in December 2017. He had appealed that both the men and women should be punished equally for their illegal relations with the married woman in the law made under Section 497 of IPC.

During the hearing, Justice Nariman said that this law is a violation of the rights of equality and the provision of equal rights to women. At the same time, the Supreme Court said that Adulti can be the basis of divorce, but there is no crime. Along with this, the court has canceled the 158-year-old rule made in 1860.
