`` PLEASE ARREST ME ``

This short-doc portrays how the police officials in India don’t act on the marital rape charges even when they have proper evidence. And that is because of the absurd marital rape laws of India. Here, it’s not illegal for a man to rape his wife. The Indian Penal Code law for rape has an exception where a rape inside a marriage is not considered a crime. Produced by Ogilvy Singapore, directed by Xavier Mairesse. Full credits below.
