Pearl V Puri
In the audio, the minor's mother shares details of her marriage and separation. She can be heard saying, "I was married for 12 years and he (minor's father) was abusive. Mentally and physically also." When Ekta informs her that Pearl V Puri has been arrested, the mother replies saying, "I don't know Ekta. He (minor's father) is putting these wrong allegations. I don't know what's wrong with him."
When Ekta insists that she should come out and inform the media about the truth as Pearl's reputation is being damaged. The mother replied saying that she does not want to take it to the press as her daughter is involved. "Your husband and your daughter have put a blame on someone. If you know the truth and you know Pearl is not involved," Ekta can be heard saying.
"I know the truth. Of course he (Pearl) is not and I have given a statement also," the mother replied. Further, on the call, Ekta in a straight forward manner asks the minor's mother, "For one second also you feel this has happened?"
To which she replies, "Not at all. My gut feeling says it has not happened. And when I've seen her (daughter) so many times in court.. can you imagine what I'm going through. It's been two years." Adding, "It has been one and a half year I'm staying without my daughter." Referring to her ex-husband on the call, the minor's mother revealed that he is "brainwashing" their daughter against her and also called him "psychotic".
"I'm with Pearl only. I'm with the truth. I have given all the statements. I have all the proofs (sic)," the mum of one said. She also added that filming sets are also a safe environment with CCTVs everywhere and chances of such serious incidents taking place are not possible. Ekta, on the other hand, towards the end of the audio tape states that bad things can happen anywhere and if there's no truth to Pearl's case, then she will inform the actor to file a case against the minor's father.
For the uninitiated, Pearl has reportedly been booked under the section of The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and was arrested by the Waliv police under IPC section 376 AB, r/w POCSO Act 4, 8, 12,19, 21.
