TV actor Pearl V Puri has been making headlines for multiple reasons. Last month, it was reported that the actor has been booked under POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act for the alleged rape of a minor girl. Several celebs including Ekta Kapoor, Anita Hassanandani, Aly Goni and others came out in support of the actor. He was granted bail a few days later. And now, as per latest reports, the victim's mother, who was a co-accused in the case, has been granted anticipatory bail.
Confirming the news, advocate Swapana Kode told Pinkvilla, 'My client's interim anticipatory bail granted on June 14th has been confirmed. My client has been made an accused in the POSCO case and hence she had approached the court as she apprehended arrest. My client has cooperated with the investigation and has given her say. The court based on the document submitted has confirmed the order.'
On the other hand, Pearl V Puri recently broke his silence on the matter. In his Instagram post, Pearl thanked his friends, fans and well-wishers for their love and support. He wrote, 'Life has its own way of testing people! I lost my nani ma few months back, then on her 17th day I lost my dad post that my mother got diagnosed with cancer and then this ghastly accusation. Last couple of weeks were gruelling for me like a nightmare. I was, overnight, made to feel like a criminal.'
Pearl further added, 'All of this in the midst of my mother's cancer treatment, it shattered my sense of security, making me feel helpless. I am still numb..' The actor thanked everyone for keeping faith in him. 'I am a firm believer of #SatyamevJayate. I trust in the law, judiciary of my country & God up there. Please keep your duas coming!'
