On Friday evening, television actor Pearl V Puri was arrested for allegedly raping a minor. It was said that the court had sent him to seven-day judicial custody, however, according to a post by actress Karishma Tanna, Pearl has been granted bail.

The actress tweeted, “Satyamev Jayate.  Truth wins and he did win. #gotbail  @pearlvpuri.”

But, the recent reports suggest that he has been sent to 14 days of judicial custody.

After Pearl was arrested, many TV celebs came out in support of the actor via social media.

Ekta Kapoor wrote a long post on Instagram which read, “Will I support a child molester…or a molester of any kind? But what I witnessed from last night to now, was the absolute low in human depravity. How can humanity go to this level? How can people who are upset with each other, drag a third person into their own fight? How can a human being take on another human being and do this? 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.”

She further wrote, “I have no right to decide, the courts will decide who is right & wrong. 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.”
