Pearl V Puri, a television star, was arrested in Mumbai two years ago for allegedly sexually abusing a five-year-old girl. In 2019, the victim's father filed a complaint against Puri.

The victim's father had approached the Valiv police in 2019 saying that his daughter had been sexually raped. The accused identity had not been known before the inquiry began.

“The accused was recently recognized by the victim, and after recording her statement, the accused was apprehended. We have taken the culprit into custody for further inquiry after identifying him,” said Sanjay Patil, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Zone of Mira Bhayandar, Vasai.

He went on to say that the accused will be brought before the court later today.

The accused has been charged under Sections 376 AB of the Indian Penal Code (Punishment for rape on a lady under the age of 12) and Sections 4, 8, 12, 19, and 21 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012.
