The TV actor was arrested on the charges of rape and molestation, reports said on Saturday.
Bollywood Bubble had reported that Pearl has been arrested for allegedly raping a minor girl. The report cited a source who confirmed the news.
“Satyamev Jayate. Truth wins and he did win. #gotbail @pearlvpuri”, she tweeted hours after his arrest.
Sharing a picture with Pearl, Karishma Tanna posted the same caption on Instagram.
“Pearl has been arrested yesterday (June 4) late-night after a girl and her family filed a rape and molestation case against him in Mumbai. He is now under police custody. We don’t know anything apart from this right now,” the source said.
Pearl V Puri is known for working on various TV shows including Ekta Kapoor’s Naagin 3, Bepanah Pyaar and Brahmarakshas 2.
Earlier, he was rumoured to be romancing his Naagin 3 co-star Karishma Tanna but the duo said that they are just good friends.
Addressing the rumours about the same Pearl had said:
“I am staying alone in Mumbai, but I have friends who have never let me feel alone. Karishma Tanna is one of those friends who has never let me feel alone in this city. She has played a very important role in taking care of me. She has always been there for me, she is still there and mera bahut saath diya hai. There are many friends who treat me as their family. I feel when you are good to people you find good people too. Staying alone is very difficult, so you need people to rely on and feel that someone is there for you.”
