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.

 “By doing so she has hurt the religious sentiments of a large number of his followers,” the complaint said.

“A two-member team of the Ludhiana police has left for Mumbai with the arrest warrant,” a police official said.

Sawant had failed to appear before the court during the last hearing held on March 9 despite the court issuing her repeated summons. The next hearing of the case is scheduled for April 10.
