The forensic test report of actor Shiney Ahuja (36), accused of raping his 20-year-old maid, received by the police on Monday, confirmed the presence of his DNA in the maid’s vaginal swab samples.

His DNA was also found on other objects close to the scene of the crime, like the bedsheets collected from his home, police officials said.

The forensic report strengthens the police case against Ahuja, with preliminary medical tests having confirmed that the maid was indeed assaulted.

Toxicology tests on the actor’s blood and urine samples had earlier ruled out the presence of alcohol or drugs in his body.

“The forensic test report supports the FIR,” Niket Kaushik, deputy commissioner of police, told Hindustan Times.

Experts from the Directorate of Forensic Science Laboratory visited the actor’s apartment soon after his arrest on June 14. Specimens collected included the undergarments of the actor and the victim, the bedsheets and curtains.

Blood and saliva samples of both, as well as the vaginal swab of the victim, were also taken.

“With this, Ahuja’s involvement has been proved beyond doubt,” said another top police officer. “It will enable us to put up a watertight case in court.”

Ahuja’s counsel, Srikant Shivde, refused to comment.
