Punjab Police has arrested controversial TV and Bollywood actor Rakhi Sawant. The arrest arrest warrant was issued by a local court on Monday.
Though Punjab Police has denied the reports. “Rakhi Sawant has not been arrested. Warrant of arrest has been issued against her by the court… A police team from Ludhiana went to Mumbai to execute the warrant, but she has not been arrested,” Police Commissioner Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh said here.
The court issued the arrest warrant after Sawant failed to appear before it on March 9 in a case filed against her for making derogatory remarks against sage Valmiki, the author of the Ramayana.
The complainants had accused Sawant of hurting religious sentiments of the Valmiki community by her remarks on a TV show.
The case will be next heard on April 10.
