He took to his social media handle to pen a long note thanking his fans for believing in him, "Life has its own way of testing people! I lost my Nani ma a few months back, then on her 17th day I lost my dad post that my mother got diagnosed with cancer and then this ghastly accusation," he started off.
Continuing further, Puri wrote, "The last couple of weeks were grueling for me like a nightmare. I was, overnight, made to feel like a criminal. All of this in the midst of my mother's cancer treatment, shattered my sense of security, making me feel helpless. I am still numb...but I felt it's time to reach out to my friends, fans, and well-wishers who've showered me with their love, support, and concern. Thank you for keeping faith in me and I am a firm believer of #Satyamevjayate. I trust in the law, the judiciary of my country & God up there. Please keep your duas coming (sic).
