Actor Shiney Ahuja has not admitted before court that he had consensual sex with his domestic help and taken a stand that he was being framed up on rape charges, his lawyer Srikant Shivade said on Sunday.
"What the actor had said in his bail petition was that even if it is assumed for the sake of argument that he had consensual sex, no offence had been made out against him," Shivade said.
In his bail petition, Ahuja said, "It is learnt that there were no external injuries on the person, which is inconsistent with the story put forth by the complainant."
36-year-old Ahuja contended that he came from a good family background and denied consensual sex or rape, saying he was being "framed up" and was a victim of a "well-hatched conspiracy" to malign his image and extort money from him.
"It is a well-hatched conspiracy to malign my image and extort money from me. The victim's story of alleged rape is highly suspicious and doubtful as no external injuries were found on her person," Shiney's bail petition said.
The prosecution argued that granting bail to Ahuja at this stage might hamper the probe as he was influential and might tamper with witnesses or even intimidate the victim.
Prosecutor RV Kini said police have a strong case against Shiney as DNA and medical reports have corroborated the victim's allegations.
Ahuja was arrested on June 15 after his 20-year-old maid accused him of raping her in his Oshiwara home. The actor is currently lodged at the Central Prison on Arthur Road and his judicial custody has been extended till July 16.
