NEW DELHI: A woman has moved the Supreme Court pursuing the fastening of the provision against her husband for forcing her to perform “unnatural” oral sex in their four years of marriage.

Aparna Bhat, the wife’s counsel said this was nothing but “sex against the order of nature”, which is categorised as an offence under Section 377. Justices N V Ramana and M M Shantanagoudar issued notice to the husband.

Justice D Y Chandrachud, who is a part of the five judge SC bench hearing the petitions seeking decriminalisation of Section 377, noticed during the hearing that oral sex and anal sex between a husband and wife could not come under “unnatural sex” or “sex against the order of nature”.

The woman married the man in 2014 in Sabarkanta, Gujarat. She was engaged to him back in 2002 when she was just 15 years old complained that her husband, a doctor, forced her to perform oral sex, which did not like.

“Her husband was incapable of comprehending her objection. The husband, aside from his insistence on oral sex, which was unnatural in the perception of the woman, persisted with her to allow video recording of their physical encounters. She was compelled to put up with the depraved demands, which were often accompanied by threats and physical abuse,” said Aparna Bhat.

The Gujarat HC said that under Section 375 there is no provision for marital rape and also rejected that allegations constituted an offence under Section 377.
