Bollywood Bubble had revealed that Naagin star Pearl V Puri was arrested on Friday (June 4) by Waliv police in Vasai (east) for allegedly raping a minor girl. As per Times of India Sanjay Patil, Mira Bhayander Vasai Virar (MBVV) DCP, Zone 2 had revealed that Pearl was remanded to police custody and booked for rape and under the section of The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. This report came as a shock and the Naagin actor’s friends have come out in support of him. But, netizens are left divided as some believe the current reports making the rounds while others feel an innocent man has been wronged.

One of the reactions on Twitter read, “You aĺl wait a minute that girl was just 11 years old he is a bloody p€do r u guys serious defending him just because he played some *Sanskari Beta/Hero’s* role in some cringy daily soap Stop defending #PearlVPuri.” On the other hand, another one read, “He is the one who respects his costars even if younger than him . How can someone even find the news true? Fake allegations on #PearlVPuri #ISTANDWITHPEARL.”

Check out the Twitter reactions below:

Meanwhile, Ekta Kapoor took to her Instagram account and showing her support for Pearl she wrote, “After various calls with the child‘s/girl’s mother, who openly said that Pearl was not involved and it’s her husband trying to create stories to keep her child and prove that a working mother on a set cannot take care of her kid. If this is true then it is wrong on so many levels! Using an extremely important movement like ‘Me Too’ frivolously, to get your own agendas met with and mentally torturing a child and making an innocent person guilty. I have no right to decide, the courts will decide who is right & wrong.”

Ekta further wrote, “My opinion only comes from what the girl’s mother said to me last night & that is – Pearl is innocent …and it is very very sad if people are using various tactics to prove working mothers are unable to take care of their children, because there are predators on the set. I have all the voice notes and messages between the child’s mother and me which clearly points to the false allegations being put on Pearl. The film industry is as safe or as unsafe as any other business. To give it a bad name to get your agenda sorted is the lowest form of low ever.
If by chance, Pearl is proved innocent, I request people to look more deeply into how the important & much needed movements in today’s time, are being used unfairly reducing the gravitas of the situation. May justice prevail!
#MayJusticePrevail @pearlvpuri.” After Ekta’s lengthy post that had shed some light on the matter, it feels like maybe an innocent man has indeed been wronged. But, there is only so much that can be said. Meanwhile, Karishma Tanna recently revealed that Pearl has been granted bail and released from Police custody.
