Law may be defined as a system of rules, enforced through a set of institutions, used as an instrument to regulate society. Law guides the human conduct and aims to maintain peace and security in the society. Basically law acts as an agent to social change, social control and prevention of crime.

Crime is an inherent attribute of every society. It exists in every society whether in small or large degree. Rape is also one of the crime which seems to be most brutal, barbaric and condemnable.
