After Pearl V Puri was arrested by Mumbai police in the rape case of a minor girl, his colleagues from TV industry including Ekta Kapoor, Krystel D’souza, and Anita Hassanandani came forward to defend him. Ekta, in fact, claimed to have spoken with the girl’s parents. She said that the victim’s mother admitted that Pearl has been wrongly framed by her daughter’s husband.
Responding to the same, Vasai DCP Sanjay Kumar Patil said that the police have found proof against Pearl. In a press conference, Kumar said that the accusations aren’t false and his name has come up during the investigation. The truth will be decided in the trial, Kumar said.
Ekta Kapoor in a long social media had defended Pear V Puri and said that the “Me Too” movement is being wrongly used to defame the actor.
