Content Warning: The article contains references to rape and abuse.

Actor Pearl V Puri has been sent to 14 days of judicial custody on the alleged rape charges. Last week, ANI had reported that Naagin 3 actor Pearl V Puri has been arrested by Waliv and Mumbai Police. “He was arrested in connection with the rape of a minor. A case has been registered under Section 376 of IPC & POCSO Act: Mumbai Police,” read ANI’s Twitter post. Later, it was also reported that the Vasai court had sent Puri to judicial custody.

Many TV celebs have come out in his support on social media. Recently, Akanksha Puri extended her support to Pearl and asserted that she has known the actor for quite some time now and can strongly say that he can never ever do or even think of doing something like this. Sharing her picture with Pearl, she wrote, “It’s so disheartening to see what’s happening around When it comes to raising our voice for the RIGHT, people try to go on back foot and escape or else they just say something for the sake of being a part of the trend !! I am a Police officer’s daughter and I know how sensitive these cases are, taking names in public, sharing details without consulting the concern person’s lawyer can really make things worst for someone who is innocent!!.”

The Vighnaharta Ganesh actress added, “If we want to HELP, let’s do it the right way !! Let’s not be the JUDGE here and let the concerned people do their job!! I am sure the truth may prevail !! I have known Pearl from quite sometime now , good enough to strongly say that he can never ever do or even think of doing something like this in his wildest of dreams ! He is an amazing person with a beautiful soul and knows how to respect woman !!#istandwithpearl.”

Anonymous : Hi I hope you see this I don't know who is rightbut the example you gave is irrelevant because it's his job to act and the song is the whole different thing than what's going on. And he helped divya because his director said so. Second thing that the it's not judge the book by it's cover it's don't judge the book by it's cover. I would have thought that you are small but I am the same age as you and I hope you become a criminal lawyer
