Mumbai: A local court Wednesday rejected the bail application of Bollywood actor Shiney Ahuja, arrested for allegedly raping his domestic maid at his residence on 14 June.
The court observed that it is a serious offence and a prima facie case has been made out against the actor.
The court also refused to accept the defence’s arguments that the victim’s story of alleged rape is “doubtful and concocted.”
The 36-year-old actor, who is currently lodged in Arthur road jail in central Mumbai, was arrested on June 15 for allegedly raping his 18-year-old domestic maid at his residence in suburban Oshiwara.
Ahuja’s lawyer said they might appeal to the Bombay High Court.
