So finally after three long months in judicial custody, actor Shiney Ahuja who had been accused of raping his domestic help , has been granted bail on the surity of Rs.50,000 and the assurance that he will not leave India, but stay out of Mumbai for some time.
There is no clear evidence that Shiney had raped his maid,” said his lawyer Shirish Gupte.
The actor will be required to live in New Delhi and refrain from tampering with evidence in any manner, he said. “He will come to Mumbai every time there is a hearing,” Gupte said.
If the charges against him are proved in the court, Shiney faces a minimum seven-year jail sentence. Considering how slow our judiciary is, even in the fast track court proceedings, the trial would take six months!
