Actor Shiney Ahuja outside the court on Friday

The Sewri fast-track court on Friday directed jail authorities to provide immediate medical relief to actor Shiney Ahuja, who is behind bars for allegedly raping his maid, after his application seeking treatment.

Following a slip disc, Ahuja was seen crying and wincing in pain when produced in court. Thirty-six-year-old Ahuja, who was unable to walk, was assisted into the courtroom by two constables. He was later brought outside and made to sit on a bench where he lay down, quivering, following which his lawyer Sameer Nangre moved a plea seeking medical treatment at the earliest.

The court directed jail authorities to provide the actor immediate medical relief and shift him to J J Hospital, if necessary, for further treatment. The court was expected to pass an order on Friday on an application filed by Ahuja’s lawyer seeking copies of the forensic report, but the matter was adjourned to October 7.

Shiney applies for bail even as forensic report on Monday confirmed that the semen sample taken from maid’s body matches the star’s DNA

By Hetal Vyas and Deeptiman Tiwary (MUMBAI MIRROR; June 30, 2009)
The Forensic Science Laboratory at Kalina on Monday confirmed that the semen sample in the vaginal swab of the maid who alleged rape, matched with the DNA of the accused, actor Shiney Ahuja.

Regardless, Shiney moved the Sessions Court last week for bail on the ground that “he is from a good family” and that some of his films are only half done and “need to be completed”.

Ahuja invoked his army background and the absence of any criminal antecedents against him as the ground of his bail. But most importantly, Ahuja argued that his films are hanging because of his incarceration and that he must be released so that he can complete them.

Ahuja’s lawyer Shrikant Shivade said, “Ahuja’s bail application mentions four main grounds: He has no criminal antecedents, he is from a good family, the trial could take a long time which may affect his unfinished films.”

Chief Public Prosecutor RV Kini said that the application would be heard on July 3.

Among Shiney’s unfinished films are Accident with Soha Ali Khan, Chaloo Movie directed by Vinod Pande, and Har Pal with Preity Zinta, for which Shiney Ahuja still has to dub.

DNA may clinch conviction

However Monday’s forensic report puts the actor on the back foot. “Any other analysis has space for doubt but not the DNA. Two people can never have the same DNA fingerprint. We got favourable results as the police were prompt in obtaining and sending us samples before they were washed away by the victim,” said a senior FSL official.

Confirming the news DCP (Zone IX) Niket Kaushik said, “The DNA report in the case supports the FIR. Ahuja’s DNA has matched with that of the semen found in the victim’s vaginal swab.”

The DNA analyses of other samples picked up from Ahuja’s house, however, have remained inconclusive. Police had sent the clothes of the victim and the accused, the bedsheet and the pillow covers of Ahuja’s bed, on which the crime was allegedly committed. An FSL investigation, did not find any semen on these samples.

Police, however, said that other reports now become immaterial as the evidence related to the intercourse has confirmed rape. Medical report of the maid also confirm physical violation. “There were injury marks on the private parts of the victim and the accused had scratches on his wrist and finger. It clearly shows that the intercourse was forced,” said a police officer.

“The report on nail clippings of the victim – to find if there is any skin or blood that matches with that of the accused – is still awaited,” said a senior officer.
