After actress Divya Kumar Khosla extended support to actor Pearl V Puri -- who has been accused of allegedly raping and molesting a child, the victim's mother penned a note on Instagram.
The 7-year-old child's mother, who worked with Pearl V Puri in 'Bepanaah Pyaar', 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 has made me take this step. Many people have choose to ridicule me and my daughter in public which is not permissible by law. Publicising a victims name in public is a offence."
"I choose to remain silent as I am not the complainant in the case. Whatever is true shall come out. The matter is subjudiced 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," she added.
Pearl Puri (31) has been arrested for allegedly raping a minor girl in 2019.
Producer Ekta Kapoor, actors Anita Hassanandani, Nia Sharma, Surbhi Jyoti and Krystle D'Souza were among the other celebs who extended support to Puri, claiming that he had been framed up.
On Monday, Divya Kumar Khosla released a statement claiming that Puri is innocent and slammed the victim's father, the complainant, for frivolously using the #MeToo movement for personal gains amid custody battle of the child.
In her post, the actress-producer also called out the victim's mother for staying mum despite allegedly knowing that Pearl is innocent.
She also claimed that the girl’s mother, in an interaction with Ekta Kapoor, clearly refused that such an incident ever took place.
