Actor Pearl V Puri’s was accused for raping a minor. He is currently in 14-day judicial custody as the case registered under the POSCO act. Several celebrities came out in support of Pearl V Puri including Ekta Kapoor, Anita Hassanandani, Nia Sharma, Krishma Tanna and Surbhi Jyoti. The victim’s mother has claimed that the actor is innocent. The lawyer of the minor’s father has recently revealed that the victim had identified the accused and the medical examination has proved that the minor was been raped.
The statement says, “I, Mr. Ashish A. Dubey, an advocate of the father of the 5-year-old girl in the Pearl V Puri case wants to issue an official statement on behalf of my client. The child who is 5 years old was in the custody of the mother and for 5 months father had no contact at all with the child. One day when the father went to school to pay her school fees the child came running to her father and said that she is scared and she wants to go with him. Seeing the fright on the child’s face the father took her home. On reaching home the child narrated what happened to her. The father immediately called the police and after a medical examination of the child at Nair hospital, it was confirmed that the child speaks the truth that molestation has happened. The child named the accused with his screen name (Ragbir). The father does not watch TV serials so he did not know him at all, nor he was aware that Ragbir is the screen name of someone. After further investigation, it came to be known that Ragbir is the screen name of an actor and his actual name is Pearl Puri.
The lawyer asked few questions in the case which reads:
Lastly, the Lawyer said my client who is a middle-class man is very deeply hurt by all these accusations because he is fighting all alone in this battle supporting his child. The father is trying to get justice for his 5 year old child against rape which is a big crime and that everyone is being judgemental about the father rather than knowing the actual truth from the police.
