On Sunday June 14th late night, actor Shiney Ahuja has been detained after having been accused of rape by his maid servant aged 19. On Monday June 15th morning, Shiney will be taken to Andheri court. His wife and daughter are out of town at the moment.
Our source reveals, "Shiney was at home with his friends on Sunday evening when police arrived to take him for interrogation. Shiney had invited his friends to watch an English movie at his house."
He is likely to be produced before a magistrate's court later in the day.
The 18-year-old maid (name withheld), said police sources, had been working with Ahuja for the last one-and-a-half months. "She approached the Oshiwara police at around 7 pm and told the police that Ahuja had raped her," said Amitabh Gupta, additional commissioner of police.
The complainant told the police that she had come for domestic work to Ahuja's flat. The actor's wife was not at home. "He took me into his bedroom, gagged and raped me," the victim is believed to have said in the FIR. The incident took place between 3 pm and 5 pm on Sunday.
"The complainant told the police that she was traumatised after the incident and went to her relatives' place who along with the girl then approached the police station," said DCP Niket Kaushik.
Soon after the complaint was registered, the girl was sent to the Nagpada police hospital for a medical examination late Sunday night.
Shiney stays with his wife and daughter at Oshiwara's Tarapore Complex and his house is just five minutes walk away from Oshiwara police station. At the time of filing this report, some news channels have started airing the news quoting their sources claim that Shiney has confessed to his crime.
We tried speaking to almost all his co-stars and directors but none of them wished to give their reaction. Shiney has been lying low at the box office especially after the flopping of his last release, Hijack.
He has on hand presently films such as Har Pall, Accident and Chaaloo Movie where he has a special appearance.
