On Friday night (June 4), television actor Pearl V Puri was arrested in connection with the rape case of a minor. Soon after his arrest, his colleagues from the television industry came out in his support and defended him. On Saturday, producer Ekta Kapoor also posted a long note where she claimed to have spoken to the victim's mother who told her that Pearl is innocent.
However, on Saturday afternoon, Pearl was sent into judicial custody after a hearing at the Vasai Court. Vasai DCP Sanjay Kumar Patil who is handling the case held a press conference and said that the accusations against Pearl are not baseless and that they have proof. During the press conference, Patil was asked about Ekta claiming that the accusations are false. “No, the accusations are not false. His name has come up in the investigation. There is evidence against him. That is why the police has arrested him. The truth will be decided in the trial,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ekta Kapoor, on Saturday, posted a long note claiming that the victim’s mother told her that the case was made up by the victim’s father to win an ongoing custody battle for their child.
