The co-accused has been granted interim-relief. The victim’s mother is the co-accused in this case.
The actor Pearl V Puri recently came to prominence for an unfortunate reason. He was arrested on charges of sexually molesting a girl younger than fifteen. He was incarcerated for 14 days. It had only been a day ago that the actor was freed from jail after having been there for eleven days. It is now rumoured that one of the alleged co-conspirators in this case has also received interim-relief. It is stated that the alleged perpetrator in this case is victim’s mother.
Lawyer Sapna Kode stated that the victim’s mother was made to relocate to the courtroom due to coercion. “My client has been granted interim relief by the Hon’ble Sessions Court till 2/7. My client has been made an accused in the Pocso case and hence she has approached the court. My client was forced to move the court as she was informed that she has been made an accused and the reason given was she did not inform anyone in spite of knowing about the incident so she had no option but to move for anticipatory bail and the matter has been posted for July 2.”
Many celebrities showed their support for Pearl V Puri after his arrest. As a show of support, many of the social media stars like Ekta Kapoor, Divya Kholsa Kumar, and Nia Sharma used their accounts to show their solidarity with Pearl. To add, Ekta shared a video recording of a video chat she had with the victim’s mother, who is arguing over custody with her husband (the victim’s father who filed the case).
