Out of jail after three months!

Finally, Bollywood actor Shiney Ahuja got bail on Thursday in the case accusing him of raping his domestic help in June this year.

The actor had been in judicial custody since the third week of June and his previous pleas for bail were quashed by the court. In his last appearing in the court a few days back Shiney was visibly unwell and had to be carried by cops to the courtroom.

At last on Thursday, the actor heaved a sigh of relief as the court granted him bail on surety of Rs.50,000.

“There is no clear evidence that Shiney had raped his maid,” said his lawyer Shirish Gupte.

While granting the bail to Shiney, the court ordered the actor to deposit his passport with the officer investigating the case.

Shiney was arrested on June 15 after his maid filed a police complaint accusing the actor of raping her in his Oshiwara residence while his wife was away. There were rumours that Shiney confessed to having consensual sex with the maid during police interrogation, but the actor has denied having made the confession.
