Rakhi Sawant arrested by Punjab Police

Known for her controversial remarks, Bollywood dancer and actress Rakhi Sawant has been arrested by a Punjab Police team in Mumbai to execute a warrant issued by a local court against her.

An arrest warrant was issued after Sawant failed to appear before the court on March 9 in a case filed against her for making derogatory remarks against sage Valmiki, the author of the Ramayana which chronicles the life and times of Hindu god Lord Rama.

The complainants had accused Sawant of hurting religious sentiments of the Valmiki community by her remarks on a TV show.

The case will be next heard on April 10.
