Rakhi Sawant had no idea that a case was filed against her, learned it from the media

A local lawyer Narinder Adiya had lodged a complaint against Sawant in the court under Section 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class) of the IPC against her ‘derogatory’ remarks against Lord Valmiki in July 2016.

A team from Salem Tabri police station had gone to Mumbai to execute the warrant, but couldn’t arrest her.
