Punjab Court Issues Arrest Warrant Against Rakhi Sawant

An fresh arrest warrant has been issued against Rakhi Sawant for hurting religious sentiments.


Ludhiana:  A court in Ludhiana rejected the anticipatory bail application of actress Rakhi Sawant and issued a fresh arrest warrant against her for failing to appear in the court on Monday in a case of hurting communal sentiments.

Judicial magistrate Vishav Gupta posted the matter for September 5.

Lawyers of Ms Sawant, meanwhile, moved an application in the court of district sessions judge Gurbir Singh seeking extension of the bail on the plea that she could not appear in the court as she was in USA.

The district sessions judge had on August 5 granted anticipatory bail to the actress on the condition that she would surrender before the trial court on August 7 and furnish surety bonds to the satisfaction of the court.

Advocate Narinder Adiya had filed the complaint against Ms Sawant on July 9 last year, claiming her comments -- allegedly made on a private television channel -- had hurt the sentiments of the Valmiki community.

The actress had tendered "an unconditional apology" to the Valmiki community after its members voiced outrage over her alleged remarks.
