An arrest warrant has been issued against Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant by a Ludhiana court for her alleged objectionable remarks about Sage Valmiki. As per reports, the arrest warrant was issued on March 9 after Sawant failed to appear before the court for the hearing of the case.
A complaint was filed against her by the Valmiki community for hurting their religious sentiments. The comments were made by her at a programme on a private TV channel in 2016 about the Sage, who is believed to have written the epic ‘Ramayana’.
“By doing so she has hurt the religious sentiments of a large number of his followers,” the complaint said.
“A two-member team of the Ludhiana police has left for Mumbai with the arrest warrant,” a police official said.
Sawant had failed to appear before the court during the last hearing held on March 9 despite the court issuing her repeated summons. The next hearing of the case is scheduled for April 10.
