Mumbai: Shiney Ahuja, accused of raping his maid, is not yet out of prison. But an Andheri court’s rejection of the plea for continued police remand for the actor—he was instead sent to judicial custody till July 2—gave his family some hope as it prepared to fight for his bail.

Shiney’s wife, Anupam, and his family members expressed happiness at the turn of events in court and said it gave them hope as they readied to file his bail
application. Police officials, however, said they would oppose the bail move tooth and nail as they feared he might influence the victim and witnesses.

The police argued in court on Thursday that Shiney’s blood test report was still awaited and, if the report indicated he was under the influence of alcohol during the alleged incident, officials would need to interrogate him in that light. But Shiney’s lawyer, Shrikanth Shivade, objected to the argument, saying police custody should not be extended on “speculative grounds’’.

The police remand application also
stated that the actor’s police custody should be extended as officials were yet to record the statement of some of the witnesses and they feared that Shiney could influence them. But the court rejected this demand and remanded the actor to judicial custody. Shivade said, “We will now file for his bail.’’
Officials were confident of having collected strong forensic evidence which would support their case. Zonal deputy commissioner of police Niket Kaushik said, “We
are waiting for Shiney’s blood test and other forensic reports. We received the preliminary medical examination report and it showed minor injury marks on his body. We will enquire whether it’s related to the incident.’’
