Bollywood actor arrested for Rape??
Bollywood actor Shiney Ahuja was on Sunday detained for questioning by the police on the charge of raping his domestic help and is likely to be put under arrest.
“The domestic help, who has been working at Ahuja’s residence in suburban Oshiwara, alleged that the actor had raped her today afternoon,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Niket Kaushik said.
“We have registered a FIR and called Ahuja to the police station for questioning in the matter to verify the facts,” he said.
The house maid in her complaint has alleged that Ahuja raped her at his residence when they were alone, Kaushik said.
Additional Police Commissioner Amitabh Gupta said the maid will be subjected to medical test and police are yet to reach any conclusion with regard to the charge levied by her against Shiney.
However, the senior police official said, the actor, who is detained at the police station till well past midnight, is most likely to be arrested in the wee hours of Tuesday.
Ahuja is married and has a daughter. He is known for his roles in films like ‘Hazaroon Khwaishe Aishi’ and ‘Gangster’.
Ahuja’s mentor, Mahesh Bhatt, who produced Gangster for him, said, “This is a body blow to me. I spoke to a top police official who told me that he was informed by his juniors at Oshiwara that Shiny claimed that he had sex with the consent of the maid. However, she has claimed that she was forced into it. The police officer added that they had to accept the woman’s version. I had spoken to Shiny only yesterday. If he is found guilty of rape, we have to condemn him.”
