Abstract

Abstract: - Offence of Rape is a disgrace that exists from time immemorial. According to UNICEF, one in ten girls around the world experience rape or sexual assault. And according to WHO estimates, 7% of the women have been assaulted, not including intimate partners, but laws and justice systems still continue to fail them across the world. Day by day rape rate in India is increasing much higher than other Crimes. Sexual intercourse of a man with women without her consent amounts to rape. Causes for increase in rape cases are due to low conviction rate for the same. The law of rape is not just a few sentences but it is a whole book, wherein we can’t just go to the last part to understand (as observation made by Retd. Joint Commissioner Kiran Bedi). The paper is a comparison and a critical analysis of the rape laws in India before and after the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 2013 which not only introduced many new sexual offences but also made punishments and penalties more stringent in an effort to curb the increasing instances of sexual offences against women in the cities of India. And also give brief description of punishment of rape in other countries.
