Bollywood Actor Shiney Ahuja who was convicted of rape, has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court.
Ahuja was found guilty on March 30 by a Mumbai court of raping his domestic help in 2009. He was sentenced to seven years in prison. Upon hearing the verdict, Mr Ahuja had broken down in court.
Mr Ahuja has appealed against the verdict in the Bombay High Court, which said that because investigation and interrogation has already been completed, Mr Ahuja does not need to stay in jail.
DNA tests submitted in court have established that Mr Ahuja raped the 18-year-old woman who worked for his wife and him at their Mumbai house. She later denied that he had raped her but the court hearing the case relied on medical tests to continue with the trial.
