Members of the local Valmiki community, under the banner of the Valmiki Tiger Force, today halted the Shatabdi Express for around an hour at the Jalandhar City railway station in protest against the alleged derogatory remarks made by actor Rakhi Sawant against Bhagwan Valmiki.
Demanding the arrest of Rakhi, a member of the community, Kuldeep Nahar, alleged that she had recently uploaded a video in which she used derogatory language while addressing Bhagwan Valmiki.
He said this had hurt religious sentiments of the community members across the country.
Giving an ultimatum of 72 hours, they threatened to intensify their protest if the police failed to arrest her.
Meanwhile, the Shatabdi passengers faced a great deal of inconvenience due to the protest.
