A Punjab Police team has left here for Mumbai to execute an arrest warrant issued by a local court against controversial TV and Bollywood actor Rakhi Sawant, police said on Monday.

The court issued the arrest warrant after Sawant failed to appear before it on March 9 in a case filed against her for making derogatory remarks against sage Valmiki, the author of the Ramayana.

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.
