Senior advocate Rebecca John on Monday told the Delhi High Court that she has been receiving hate mails for her stance of marital rape, PTI reported. John is one of the amici curiae – friends of the court – who have been appointed to assist the court with a batch of petitions demanding criminalisation of marital rape.

These petitions have challenged Exception 2 of the Indian Penal Code Section 375 that exempts husbands from being punished even if they have non-consensual sex with their wives.
