Rakhi Sawant has been in the news, mostly for all the wrong reasons. And here, she is at it again. Recently, she grabbed headlines after an arrest warrant was issued against the controversial actress. Why? Well, a local court in Ludhiana issued the arrest warrant for allegedly making objectionable remarks against Sage Valmiki, who wrote the mythological epic Ramayana.
While several reports suggest that she has been arrested by Punjab Police, a report by Hindustan Times said that Punjab police has denied the facts that they have arrested her. The report said that they had not been able to arrest her and were returning empty-handed from Mumbai.
Confirming that Rakhi Sawant has not been arrested, Ludhiana Deputy Commissioner of Police Dharuman Nimbale said that a police team, which comprised of two head constables including a woman constable, who went to arrest her, are on their way back to Ludhiana.
The arrest warrant was issued on March 9 after she failed to appear before the court in a case against her for making derogatory remarks against Sage Valmiki.
So, here’s what had happened last year. Rakhi, while talking to a private channel, said that Sage Valmiki was once a murderer but later wrote Ramayana. She compared Valmiki to singer Mika, who had forcibly kissed her back in 2014, and said that like the Sage, the singer is also now a changed man and is innocent.
