Non-bailable arrest warrant issued against Rakhi Sawant


Controversial queen Rakhi Sawant is in legal trouble. A non-bailable arrest warrant has been issued against the 38-year-old actor for hurting the religious sentiments of the Valmiki community. This is the second time a Ludhiana court an issued arrest warrant against Rakhi. In April, the same court in Punjab had issued the warrant after the actress after she failed to appear before the court on March 9.

Rakhi hurt the sentiment of the Valmiki community for making derogatory remark against sage Valmiki, the author of the epic Ramayana.

The actor has invited trouble for herself when she had drawn a comparison between Valmiki and singer Mika Singh. Miffed Valmiki community lodged complaint against her.

"I think people are forcefully dragging me under bad light to ruin my career. I did not say anything wrong to hurt anyone's sentiment. Even then, I made an apology video and uploaded it online," Rakhi had told news agency IANS in April.

"I am as fearless as the Rani of Jhansi and I will fight against all those people who are dragging me in controversy," she had said.

When the situation turned worse, the actor apologised the Valmini community for hurting the religious sentiments, "I just gave an example of Valmiki ji that I have been reading in books since childhood... I didn't want to hurt anybody's sentiments," she said.
