Shiney Ahuja was accused of raping his domestic maid at his residence in suburban Oshiwara on June 14 after calling her to his bedroom on the pretext of getting a glass of water. When the maid went inside, Ahuja bolted the door and raped her, she had alleged.
He was arrested and spent 110 days in police and judicial custody in various jails before the Bombay High Court granted him bail on surety of Rs.50,000. On March 30, 2011, the Mumbai Sessions Court held him guilty of rape and sentenced him to seven years imprisonment. Ahuja now plans to appeal against the sentence in a higher court.
