Controversial queen, Rakhi Sawant is back in the news for allegedly making derogatory remarks against sage Valmiki. The complainant had accused Rakhi of hurting the religious sentiments of the Valmiki community. Following which, a case was filed against Rakhi and the court in Punjab had issued an arrest warrant. Recently, reports stated that Rakhi Sawant has been arrested from her residence in Mumbai by Punjab police. However, the TV actress has denied of any such arrest and nor she has got an arrest warrant.
Holding a press conference in this regard, Rakhi 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.”
Talking about the situation, she said, “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.”
Rakhi Sawant landed into trouble last year after she made a statement while defending her for-turned friend Mika Singh. In her statement, Rakhi had mentioned that Mika had turned over a new leaf like Valmiki transformed from a robber into a saint. This statement has landed her in trouble. The court hearing is soon to take place on April 10.
During the press conference, Rakhi also said that she is being harassed and dragged to the court with no fault of her. Rakhi Swant stated, “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 am not guilty. I was just giving an example to save my best friend Mika and I got trapped. He was bad earlier but now he has changed and at that time I could only think of Valmiki ji and his story. There are people, who threatened me, abused me. Police can check my call recordings from July 6-14. They will get to know what all pathetic things I was said. I can’t even say those things.”
Rakhi Sawant, who is known to make controversial statements to stay in the limelight, assured that there is nothing about the case that she wants to publicize. She also made a request to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP’s national president, Amit Shah, to rescue from the situation.
“I went to Ludhiana but I didn’t want to tell anyone because I don’t want publicity. I think I will sneeze even then a case will be there. Had I known about the case, I would have hired a lawyer. I am frustrated. Wherever I am going people are asking me why didn’t you go to jail, aap toh jail mei thi! 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,” she said.
Concluding the press conference, Rakhi Sawant said that she is hoping to get bail and that she is very much hurt with the situation.
