Rakhi Sawant may be arrested by Ludhiana Police in a case related to objectionable remarks she made on sage Valmiki who wrote the epic Ramayana. A local court in Ludhiana had issued an arrest warrant against her, following which a two-member police team from Ludhiana had gone to Mumbai to arrest the actor. Now, the next hearing is scheduled to be held on April 10. Here’s all you need to know about the case so far.
What’s the issue all about?
Last year, Rakhi sparked a row when she made a controversial remark against sage Valmiki who wrote Ramayana. The remark angered the Valmiki community and the members blocked the Adampur-Hoshiarpur Highway in Punjab for more than an hour. On July 13, around members of Valmiki Tiger Force had also halted the Shatabdi Express at Jalandhar railway station, demanding stern action against Rakhi. The members gave a deadline to the civic administration to act or face stringent protest. On July 26, the local court issued summons to her on the basis of a complaint filed by a lawyer named Narendra Aadia. But Rakhi did not appear for hearing on July 29. Despite repeated summons, the actor did not appear for the hearing on March 9 and hence the arrest warrant was issued against her.
It is no denying fact that Valmiki community forms a sizeable segment of Punjab’s population and is wooed by several political parties. Rakhi has angered the community and the members are in no mood to forgive her. The actor who made her acting debut in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Main Hoon Na, is known for making controversial statement. Her animosity towards Sunny Leone is not hidden from public. She has verbally attacked the Canadian-born actor, accusing her of ruining India’s youth. Well, this time she has landed herself in a major trouble.
