The Constitutional Bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India vide its order dated 27/09/2018 in W.P ( Criminal) No: 194/2017, Case title: Joseph Shine vs Union of India, has strike off the section 497 Indian Penal Code (IPC) as unconstitutional,  which is reproduced here as:

“Whoever has sexual intercourse with a person who is and whom he knows or has reason to believe to be the wife of another man, without the consent or connivance of that man, such sexual intercourse not amounting to the offense of rape, is guilty of the offence of adultery, and shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to five years, or with fine, or with both. In such case, the wife shall not be punishable as an abettor.”

By striking off the section from the IPC, it has given general license to the people of the country to have illegitimate relationships while being in the marriages

As per TOI, dated 27/08/2018, the DCW too sought an opinion from Public
