On 14th September, 2007, a two Judges Bench in State of Karnataka vs Raju [Criminal Appeal No.782 of 2001] held that “the measure of punishment in a case of rape cannot depend upon the social status of the victim or the accused. It must depend upon the conduct of the accused, the state and age of the sexually assaulted female and the gravity of the criminal act.” “The socio-economic status, religion, race, caste or creed of the accused or the victim are irrelevant considerations in sentencing policy”.

“Crimes of violence upon women need to be severely dealt with”, the Bench observed.
