Mumbai: Actor Pearl V Puri’s arrest has sparked a massive controversy in the television industry. While the actor, who is accused of rape and molestation of a minor has been sent to 14 days of judicial custody, several celebrities came in support of him.

Now, Vasai DCP Sanjay Kumar Patil has reacted to Ekta Kapoor’s claims saying that all such allegations are false. He also added that Pearl has been arrested because there is evidence against him. “No, the accusations are not false. His name has come up in the investigation. There is evidence against him. That is why the police have arrested him. The truth will be decided in the trial,” he said.

This comes after Ekta Kapoor took to Instagram sharing a long note and demanding justice for the Naagin 3 actor. She also claimed that she spoke to the complainant’s family and that they also admit that Pearl is innocent. ”Pearl was not involved and it’s her husband trying to create stories to keep her child and prove that a working mother on a set cannot take care of her kid,” she had written. Ekta’s post had also irked netizens on Saturday, who then took to Twitter attacking her for making ‘false allegations.’
