Mumbai: Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant has been arrested on Tuesday by the Punjab Police over the derogatory remarks on sage Valmiki, who wrote the mythological Hindu epic ' Ramayana'.
Earlier a local court in Ludhiana issued an arrest warrant against her for allegedly making inflammatory remarks against the sage, which has allegedly hurt religious sentiments of the Valmiki Community.
While speaking about the controversy created in the name of Valmiki, the 38-year-old actress said that she used the example of Valmiki's change of soul to explain the change in her friend and singer Mika Singh, when he was accused in an assault case.
"I just gave an example from what I have read in my childhood. Just like Valmiki, who got changed from being a robber to a saint, Mika ji also has changed. It was just an example," she said.
The case will be next heard on April 10. (With agency inputs)
