On Saturday, ETimes reported that television actor Pearl V Puri has been booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act for the alleged rape of a minor girl. The Naagin 3 actor was arrested on Friday by the Waliv Police. Soon after the news broke, Pearl’s friend Anita Hassanandani wrote on Instagram, “Woke up to some nonsensical news bout @pearlvpuri. I know him! It is NOT true ... canNOT be true.... all lies. I’m sure there is more to it. And the truth will be out soon. Love you @pearlvpuri #ISTANDWITHPEARL.” 

When Pinkvilla reached out to Pearl’s friend and actress Karishma Tanna she said, “It's a baseless allegation. It's sheer bad luck that this has happened to him. I have known Pearl since a long long time, nothing like that has happened. It's just a baseless thing, and it's sheer bad luck. It's just the wrong phase.” Actors Karishma Tanna and Pearl V Puri have even worked together in the Ekta Kapoor produced Naagin 3.

She is a 12 year old girl! Let's have some shame before calling her baseless. It's horrifying, if it turns out to be true.
