Pearl V Puri molestation case: Minor’s mother named as co-accused in the case
After 11 days, Pearl V Puri was granted bail by the Sessions Court in Mumbai in an alleged molestation case. The Naagin 3 actor was booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act after a case was filed against him by a minor. Pearl V Puri was then arrested by the Mumbai police and was sent to 14-day judicial custody. His bail plea was rejected twice before being granted one on Tuesday. Now, in the latest development, it is being reported that the minor’s mother has been named as co-accused in the case and has been granted interim relief too.
Lawyer Swapna Kode was quoted saying to TOI, “The session court has granted interim relief to her (victim’s mother). She has been made an accused in the Pocso case. That’s why she has approached the court. And the reason was given was she did not inform anyone in spite of knowing about the incident so she had no option but to move for anticipatory bail and the matter has been posted for July 2.” Karishma Tanna, Nia Sharma among others expressed their relief knowing Pearl V Puri has been granted bail in the matter.
