A 109-page chargesheet has been filed by the Mumbai police against Bollywood actor Shiney Ahuja accusing him of rape, wrongful confinement and threatening his domestic servant.
The chargesheet contains medical and forensic reports of the actor and the victim, statements of the witnesses, including the neighbours and those who helped the victim lodge a complaint.
The victim's statement has been recorded before a magistrate under the provisions of section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) in order to strengthen the case.
Ahuja has been in languishing in the high security Arthur Road prison in central Mumbai since his arrest on June 15. The 36-year-old actor, whose judicial custody ends today, would be produced before a metropolitan magistrate.
According to the police, on June 14, Ahuja had called the victim to his room at his residence saying he needed water. He then locked the room and allegedly raped her.
The victim has alleged that the actor locked her inside the room for a few hours before allowing her to leave the house.
Medical reports have indicated that the actor had intercourse with the maid. Forensic experts retrieved semen stains from the maid's private parts and they matched with the actor's DNA profile.
The sessions court had earlier rejected the actor's bail plea observing that there was prima facie evidence against him.
