Question 12 Explanation: 

Regarding Statement 1:
* From 2016: ( http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-news-india/india-will-not-ink-hague-treaty-on-civil-aspects-of-child-abduction-4397236/ ): "We found that there are more cases of Indian women who return to the safety of their homes in India after escaping a bad marriage. Cases of women who are foreign citizens, married to Indian men, going away with their children are far fewer. Hence signing the Hague Convention would be to the disadvantage of Indian women. Also, a majority of such cases pertain to women instead of men running away," said a WCD official.
* http://indianexpress.com/article/explained/behind-indias-unease-with-a-global-child-abduction-law-4781318/ : The Ministry of Women and Child Development, wary of Indian women being charged or prosecuted in foreign countries, declined to back the draft bill prepared by the Law Commission.
Regarding Statement 2:
* Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code, which defines rapes, makes an exception for marital rape by stating, "Sexual intercourse by a man with his own wife, the wife not being under fifteen years of age, is not rape."
* ( http://indianexpress.com/article/explained/marital-rape-a-crime-in-many-countries-an-exception-in-many-more-4821403/ ): The central government recently filed an affidavit in response to pleas seeking criminalising marital rape, arguing that marital rape should not be criminalised, on the ground that it may "destabilise the institution of marriage" and that it would be "and an easy tool for harassing the husbands". The Centre also cited the Supreme Court and various High Courts' observations of the growing misuse of section 498A (harassment caused to a married woman by her husband and in-laws) of the IPC. "
