In the last two days, the TV industry was reeling from a big shock after news of Karan Mehra & Nisha Rawal’s midnight brawl went viral. Now, in another shocking twist of events, a TV star has been arrested on alleged charges of rape and molestation. Actor Pearl V Puri who is known for shows like Naagin 3, Bepanah Pyaar and Brahmarakshas 2 has been accused of raping a girl and has been arrested for the same. Several industry sources have confirmed the news, on condition of anonymity.

A source told us, “Pearl has been arrested yesterday (June 4) late-night after a girl and her family filed a rape and molestation case against him in Mumbai. He is now under police custody. We don’t know anything apart from this right now.” We reached out to Pearl and texted him for his version but he was unavailable and didn’t respond till the time of us putting this story out.

Pearl has always been in news and grabbed headlines for his supposed relationships. While he and Karishma Tanna were together for a few years, close sources say their relationship went kaput sometime last year but they have remained friends ever since. Right now, much isn’t known about who the complainant is or what her age is, but the same source who revealed to us about his arrest, also added that it probably could be a minor girl who complained against Pearl.

While the entire matter won’t be clear till we get further updates on the same, watch this space for more.
