A fresh arrest warrant has been issued against actress Rakhi Sawant after she failed to appear in court on Tuesday in a case linked to the “objectionable” remarks against sage Valmiki, the author of Ramayana. The Punjab court rejected an anticipatory bail plea of the actress.
The Rakhi’s lawyer has moved an application seeking an extension of the bail saying that she couldn’t appear in the court as she is in the US.
On July 9 last year, advocate, Narinder Adiya had filed a complaint against Rakhi, claiming that she had hurt the sentiments of the Valmiki community by passing “objectionable” statements against sage Valmiki on a TV channel. Soon the remark triggered outrage that led Rakhi to tender “an unconditional apology” to the community.
However, it seems that she is not going to get rid of the controversy easily.
