Famous tv actor Pearl V Puri was arrested for allegedly raping a minor girl. Many tv celebs came in support of the actor. Ekta Sharma who is the mother of the victim breaks her silence and revealed why she chose to keep quiet. As per the reports, the incident happened on the sets of the tv show, ‘Bepanah Pyar’ in 2019. The girl used to visit the sets of the show along with her mother who is also a part of the show.
Ekta Sharma recently took to her Instagram handle and revealed the reason behind her silence. She wrote, “A lot of people are calling and asking me to come to the media and speak. My silence should not be construed as my weakness. My respect and faith in the judiciary have made me take this step. Many people have chosen to ridicule me and my daughter in public which is not permissible by law. Publicising a victims name in public is an offence. I choose to remain silent as I am not the complainant in the case. Whatever is true shall come out. The matter is sub Judice and hence I am not speaking to anyone as the custody case is pending in the Highcourt and it’s my earnest request to all that please don’t make a mockery of the legal system as I have given my statement to the concern authorities. Let the truth prevail,”
Divya Khosla Kumar is the latest celeb who has spoken up in support of Pearl V Puri. The actress also took to Ekta Sharma’s post and commented, “Pearl lost his father recently , his mother is a cancer patient… she has no one to help her .. she has been calling me repeatedly crying …. He has been put behind bars in a rape case under such strong sections that their is no bail … High court is closed due to Covid & holidays …. in the meantime if something happens to Pearls mother who should we hold responsible ???? Coz the law will take its own time …. U have enough time on hand but a senior citizen suffering from cancer …. Do you realise the sensitivity of the whole case ?,”
Pearl V Puri was arrested on Friday. The actor was then sent to 14-days of judicial custody by Vasai court.
