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.
