Rape is non-consensual sexual intercourse, including vaginal, anal, or oral penetration with a body part or other object.
Rape occurs when sexual intercourse is carried out
1. Through force, violence, duress, menace or fear of injury to victim or others.
2. Without consent of the victim due to intoxication or unconsciousness
3. Where the victim is unable to give consent because of mental impairment or is not of legal age to give consent to sexual intercourse.
The only person responsible for Rape is the Rapist
