Rape confirmed, Shiney in trouble

“The findings of the medical report confirm the statements in the victim’s first information report (FIR),” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone VI) Niket Kaushik said.

In another disclosure, the official said that a physical examination of the victim indicated she could be aged between 17-18 years, making her a minor.
The actor’s lawyer Shrikant Shivede said: “He’s in the police station for interrogation as of now. No charge sheet has been filed yet. so we’ll think of something when the charge sheet is filed.”
On Sunday, the maid lodged a complaint against Shiney, accusing him of raping her, threatening to kill and illegally confining her, leading to the actor’s arrest. The actor was produced before a magistrate in suburban Andheri court Monday afternoon and was remanded to police custody till June 18.
The victim had been working with him for the past one year. She has accused him of repeatedly raping her.
The victim used to commute by local train from Vasai suburb in neighbouring Thane district to Shiney’s home daily for doing cooking and other chores along with two other part-time servants. Police say that after interrogation, Shiney said he had “a physical relationship” with the victim. He has reportedly said he could have committed the crime in a drunken state.
He is said to be living separately from his wife Anupama, who has rushed from the US to Mumbai. The couple has a daughter. “I love my husband...He is a wonderful father, a great partner and most importantly, he is an innocent man. I stand by him with all my soul...,” Anupama said.
She also slammed the reports that the actor had “confessed” to raping his maid. “It is a lie...utter rubbish,” she said.
