Rakhi Sawant is allegedly making objectionable remarks against sage Valmiki.
A local court here has come out an arrest warrant against Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant for allegedly making objectionable 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 program on a private television channel last year, police said today.
"By doing so, she has hurt the spiritual views of a great number of his followers," the complaint alleged.
"A two-member team of the Ludhiana police has left for Mumbai with the arrest warrant," a police official stated.
Sawant had failed to come out before the court during the final hearing held on March 9 despite the court issuing her repeated summons.
The following hearing of the lawsuit is scheduled for April 10.
