Controversy queen, Rakhi Sawant has been in news since past few days. The reason being an FIR is filed against her for allegedly making derogatory remarks against sage Valmiki. Recently there were reports that Rakhi Sawant has been arrested from her residence in Mumbai by Punjab police. But the actress denied and said that she is not and neither has she received any arrest warrant.
She also added that she is being harassed by the Valmiki community and has requested PM Narendra Modi to rescue her from the situation.
Rakhi had opened up on the controversy in a press conference and said, “I want to know why were police searching for me? Where did I go? Mai Hindustan ki beti hoon, Hindustan mei hi hun. I was shooting in Mumbai. I never went anywhere. I said something in 2016 and its warrant is being issued in 2017. I don’t get it.”
She had further added, “Neither police met me, nor have I been given any warrant. I neither got any summon, nor any letter. Will I get a dream about it? I read on TV that I got arrested! I knew nothing. I went to Oshiwara police station. This is under the law that if you doubt that there’s a case against you, you approach the police. So, I went and surrendered. Even they don’t have any summon.”
She also made a shocking statement of being threatened by the Valmiki community since past one year. She said, “I am being harassed. I haven’t hurt the sentiments of Valmiki community but there is a group of people, lawyers… I am being harassed. I am being dragged to court without any fault of mine. I want to appeal to the government, I want to ask Modi ji that what is happening with your citizens? You are in power and some people are taking advantage. I want to request Modi ji and Amit Shah ji that I am being harassed, please see this. I have always supported BJP so please you support me.”
Rakhi Sawant landed into trouble last year after she made a statement comparing singer Mika to sage Valmiki. She had said that Mika had turned over a new leaf like Valmiki transformed from a robber into a saint.
