Publish Date: 31 Oct, 2022 |

The Supreme Court has expressed strong displeasure over the two finger test to be done to investigate whether a woman has been raped or not. A bench headed by Justice Chandrachud said that the Supreme Court has already banned the two-finger test. The Supreme Court has said that the central and state governments should ensure that this is banned. Despite this, if anyone takes the two-finger test, he will be considered guilty of misconduct. The court has clearly said that there is no scientific basis for the two finger test.

The two finger test was banned by the Supreme Court in the year 2013 itself. The Supreme Court has said that it has come to the notice that it is being used despite the ban. The Supreme Court has said that the two-finger test should also be removed from the study material of medical colleges. The court observed that this test is based on patriarchal thinking and it shows that a woman who has sexual intercourse cannot be raped.

Directions to the Central and State Governments

The Supreme Court said that there is no scientific basis for this test and the victim has to face the same kind of torture again. The court has directed the state governments as well as the central government to issue a guideline to government and private hospitals in this regard. Also, it should be ensured that such tests are not done anywhere.
