“There are cases when the college-going teens, below 18 years of age, engage in sexual activities consensually and get booked under the law.”Who is going to suffer? The boy is not at fault. The punishment of seven years is too harsh,”

The bench further added: “In these cases, we do have a problem if look at various aspects.”

If a girl is under 18 years of age, but more than 15 and married, then no offence of rape is made out.

Meanwhile, Advocate Gaurav Agarwal who is appearing for NGO Independent Though said: “Parliament cannot impinge upon Article 21 by allowing the girl to marry under 18 years of age and allowing her to get pregnant or have intercourse. The Parliament should have considered various reports of the United Nations.”
