The actor’s lawyer, Shrikant Shivade, made a strong plea for bail to be granted to Shiney Ahuja .
“The victim's story of the alleged rape seems highly doubtful and concocted...If she had resisted, then the actor would have had more injuries on his body. But Ahuja has only two scratches on his hand,” his lawyer Shrikant Shivade is reported to have said in the court.
The prosecution opposed the actor's bail saying that medical and forensic reports of the accused as well as the victim had been reported positive. "Circumstances and evidence point out that it is a case of rape and not consensual sex".
However, the court observed that it is a serious offence and a prima facie case has been made out against the actor.
Shiney is presently in judicial custody for allegedly raping his domestic help on June 14 at his Oshiwara residence. He was arrested and remained in police custody for a few days before being sent to judicial custody which was later extended till July 16.
