Rakhi Sawant untraceable after police attempts arrest over Maharshi Valmiki comments

The complainant had accused Rakhi Sawant of hurting religious sentiments of the Valmiki community by her remarks on a TV show.

Highlights

  • Sawant had made some objectionable remark against Valmiki, who wrote Ramayana.
  • A Ludhiana court had issued a warrant against Sawant on March 9.

Rakhi Sawant, the controversial TV and Bollywood actor, is untraceable after a Ludhiana court issued a warrant of arrest against her for hurting sentiments of the Maharshi Valmiki community.

Punjab Police has denied reports that Rakhi Sawant has been arrested and said she was not found at her Mumbai house.

“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.

Ludhiana DCP Dhruman Nimbley said, “A police team from Ludhiana had gone to Mumbai to execute a warrant issued by a court here. However, she was not found at the given address. She has not been arrested yet.”

He said police will report the matter to the court. The warrant was issued by a local court on March 9 on the basis of a complaint filed against her for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of the Maharshi Valmiki community with her comments on a programme on a private television channel last year.

Sawant had failed to appear before the court during the last hearing of the case on March 9.

On the court’s instruction, a two member team of Ludhiana police had left for Mumbai with arrest warrants on Sunday.

The next hearing of the case was fixed for April 10.
