Right to Self-Defence Law:
This is extracted from an article in Daily hunt.
Murder During a Rape Attempt : If a girl or woman is fearing that the next individual will harm her or she is going to be raped then she can use self-defence. If on any point a woman feels that this assault can be harmful to her, then murder by the woman will not be considered a murder in a court of law.
Any injury in Rape to man is not considered by Law. If during a rape, a woman harms the attacker in any way then this is seen as an act of self-defence. That means that if a woman, during a sexual assault, bites the face of the man and he dies, then it would not be murder.
