Allahabad High Court has sought the assistance of Attorney General and Uttar Pradesh government on the issue relating to the discrepancy in law in the definition of child in case of kidnapping and rape.

The Lucknow Bench issued notices to the Attorney General and Advocate General, asking them to submit their respective explanations, assigning reasons as to why the age of male child in Section 361 IPC and the age of female child in Section 375 IPC has not been raised to 18 years from the existing 16 years.
