Actress Arrested For Derogatory Remarks

Controversial Bollywood actress turned Politician Rakhi Sawant has been arrested by Punjab Police today for making derogatory remarks against sage Valmiki, who wrote the mythological Hindu epic Ramayana.

A local court in Ludhiana issued the arrest warrant against Rakhi Sawant on March 9 on the basis of a complaint filed against her for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of the Valmiki community with the comments she made in a program last year.

Sawant had failed to appear before the court during the last hearing held on March 9 despite the court issuing her repeated summons. The next hearing of the case is scheduled for April 10.
