Mumbai: The Bombay High Court has refused to give relief to actor Shiney Ahuja, who sought expeditious hearing of his appeal against his conviction and sentence in a rape case, while observing that older cases were pending and it saw no urgency as he was already out on bail. Hearing the actor’s petition, Justice Sadhana Jadhav said, “Appeals of 1993-94 are pending hearing in the High Court. Hence the applicant’s plea for expeditious hearing of his appeal will be considered in due course of time.”
