Warrant against Rakhi Sawant for hurting religious sentiments

Controversial Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant has got into trouble as a local court in Ludhiana, Punjab has issues an arrest warrant against her. The warrant was issued on March 9 for allegedly making objectionable remarks against sage Valmiki, who wrote the mythological Hindu epic ‘Ramayana’.

A complaint was filed against Rakhi for hurting religious sentiments of the Valmiki community with the comments she made in a programme last year, police said on Sunday (April 2). “A two-member team of the Ludhiana police has left for Mumbai with the arrest warrant,” a police official said.

Rakhi was repeatedly summoned by the court to appear before it on March 9 for the hearing in the case, but the actress failed to show up, after which the arrest warrant was issued. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for April 10.
