Abstract

Rape is a crime that violates women’s rights as human beings which are exacerbating. This article aims to examine the differences and similarities in the regulation of rape between the Indonesian Penal Code and the Indian Penal Code. This research is normative or commonly referred to as library research with a comparative law approach, which juxtaposes the rape law contained in the Indonesian Penal Code and the Indian Penal Code. The data comprise legal documents, journals, various sources from the internet, and/or relevant literature. The results showed that there were similarities and differences between both Penal Codes. The similarities define it as an act that can be punished, but there are fundamental differences, namely in the formulation of the act and criminal sanctions. The scope of rape in the Indian Penal Code is wider so that this can be considered in the Penal Code reform since it further expands the protection for women from severe sexual assault.
