Nature of Section 376 IPC

The violation of Section 375, which carries a sentence under Section 376 of the IPC, is a cognizable offense. A cognizable offense is one for which, in accordance with the first schedule or any other applicable law, a police officer may make an arrest without a warrant and launch an investigation without the judge's approval. Examples of cognizable offenses include murder, rape, kidnapping, theft, dowry death, and other heinous or serious crimes.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of a serious crime, you should report it as soon as possible to the local police station so that a FIR can be filed and the victim's medical evaluation can begin. The victim has more evidence to bring in court because of the extensive evidence the medical evaluation reveals about the crime. You may be sure that justice is served and a prompt trial occurs since the nature of the offense under Section 376 is cognizable, which allows a police officer to make an arrest without a warrant.
