Mumbai: The police have filed a 109-page charge sheet against Shiney Ahuja on Tuesday, charging him with rape, wrongful confinement and threatening his maidservant at his residence in Lokhandawla on June 14.
Ahuja has been remanded to judicial custody till August 13. The sessions court earlier rejected his bail plea, saying there was prima facie evidence to show that a serious offence had been committed.
The charge sheet contained medical and forensic reports and statements of the witnesses, including those who helped the maid to file a complaint at the Oshiwara police station.
The police also recorded the statement of the victim and a witness before the magistrate to strengthen the case and their statements were part of the charge sheet. Additional commissioner of police (west region) Amitabh Gupta confirmed the development.
The maid had told the police that Ahuja called her into his room on June 14, saying he needed water. He then locked the room and raped her.
The actor also locked her inside the room for a few hours before allowing her to leave the flat, she had ‘alleged’. She came to the ground floor in one of the lifts where some witnesses saw her crying and she narrated the entire episode to them. Medical reports indicated that the actor had intercourse with the victim, officials said, adding that her statement was supported by circumstantial evidence.
