A Punjab Police team has left for Mumbai to execute an arrest warrant that was issued by a local court against Bollywood actress and dancer Rakhi Sawant, police said on Monday.
An arrest warrant has been issued against Rakhi Sawant in case of making unacceptable remarks against sage Valmiki, writer of mythological Hindu epic ‘Ramayana.’
Warrant was issued against her on March 9 as the Valmiki community complained that their religious sentiments were hurt with her comments on a programme telecasted on a private channel in 2016, according to police.
"By doing so she has hurt the religious sentiments of a large number of his followers," the complaint said.
"A two-member team of the Ludhiana police has left for Mumbai with the arrest warrant," a police official said.
On March 9 hearing, Rakhi Sawant failed to appear before the court even when court had issued her repeated summons.
Well the next hearing of the case has been scheduled for April 10.
