Shiney's lawyer Shrikant Shivade argued that his client has no criminal antecedents and is from a good family. Shrikanth also added that the trial could take a long time which may affect his unfinished films. Shiney was working on three project Accident with Soha Ali Khan, Chaloo Movie and Har Pall with Preity Zinta when he was arrested. The application would now be heard on July 3 a day after his judicial remand in Mumbai's Aurther Road Jail ends.
Sources in the police said that with Shiney's DNA report confirming he had sexual intercourse with the maid servant her accusing him of rape they have enough evidence to grill him. It now seems very unlikely that Shiney will be granted a bail as the forensic report puts the actor on the back foot. Many Women Rights Group are closely monitoring the case and demanded it to be fast tracked.
