Ludhiana’s local court issued arrest warrant against Rakhi Sawant for making questionable remarks against Sage Valmiki, who wrote the mythological Hindu epic Ramayana.
The warrant was issued on March 9 on the basis of a complaint filed against her for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of the Valmiki community with her comments on a programme on a private television channel last year, police said today.
She had failed to appear before the court during the last hearing held on March 9 despite the court issuing her repeated summons.
A team of two-member of the Ludhiana police has left for Mumbai with the arrest warrant, said police official
The next hearing of the case is scheduled for April 10.
