Bollywood actor Shiney Ahuja has been convicted for raping his domestic help by a Mumbai court.

Shiney Ahuja had earlier been granted bail by Justice A P Deshpande of Mumbai High Court on October 1, 2009 on a surety of Rs. 50,000 with a condition that he would stay in Delhi and report to the nearest police station regularly.

In 2009 Bollywood Actor Shiney Ahujas 18-year-old maid accused him of rape, when both of them were alone at his flat.

The medical reports confirm that Shiney is guilty and that his DNA had been found to match the sperm found on his maid’s clothes.

Though the forensic report confirmed that the semen sample taken from maid’s body matches the star’s DNA

The trial was being conducted in-camera before the Sewri fast track court.
In-camera trial refers to a case where the court bars the media from reporting about the case as per section 327 of the CrPC, applicable in cases like rape.

Shiney Ahuja has been sentenced to seven years in prison.
From court, Ahuja was taken to jail.

The rape victim maid turned hostile in the case of Shiney.

Now Sessions Court has issued a notice to maid as to why no action should be taken for having filed a false report," the judge observed while delivering the verdict on March 30.

Sessions judge P M Chouhan pointed out seven circumstantial evidences to nail the actor in the crime that include semen stains on bed sheet and a nail injury on the actor's arm indicating that force was used on the victim.

Now Shiney Ahuja will appeal in the High court against this judgment.

Ahuja made his acting debut with Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, which was released in 2005.
Shiney Ahuja has acted in hit films like Gangster, Hazaron Khwaishen Aisi and Woh Lamhe.

Now that Shiney Ahuja had lost Criminal Rape Case, 50% of his property should be awarded to the victim in Civil Law suit. Same must be applied with Corrupt and Looter Politicians, 7 years for RAPE’s the Trust of Citizens + Corruption and Looting the Nation charges. Unfortunately, most of the Politicians gets away with every charges.

What is going to happen to the maid? Maybe they are poor, but this incident will affect them more than the starlets he is moving with.

If proven, the punishment should be more.

In Aruna's case also, the rapist escaped with 7 years' imprisonment but she is still suffering.

But did not victim withdraw the case....should not there be charges to block justice by speaking with victim and trying to back her off

Offence of rape is cognizable offence.
The victim changed her statement but medical report proved that she was raped.
There is provision for this.
But this rarely happens in India that witness is punished for changing his witness.
