A Ludhiana court has issued an arrest warrant against actress Rakhi Sawant for failing to appear in the court today in the case of hurting communal sentiments. With this, the court has also rejected the anticipatory bail application of her.
Rakhi was in the United States Of America and was granted the anticipatory bail on August 5 on a condition that the actress would surrender before the trial court on August 7.
On July 9, 2016, Advocate Narinder Adiya had filed the complaint against Rakhi claiming that her comments which she made on a private television channel had made the sentiments of the Valmiki community. In the statement, Rakhi called Valmiki a murderer and said, “Hum Valmiki ki baat karte hain, vo ek time logo ke murder karte the. Lekin baad mein Ramayan likhi na?”
According to The Indian Express, Rakhi had apologized for her remarks by stating: “I never meant to hurt anyone. However, if I did it in ignorance, I seek an apology from the people.”
