Muzaffarnagar: Bhartiya Kisan Union today demanded that actress Rakhi Sawant should be arrested for allegedly abeting the suicide of a youth, who took the extreme step after he was humiliated on the TV show that she hosts.

The outfit`s spokesman Rakesh Tikait alleged that a youth from Jhansi had committed suicide after he was insulted on her show `Rakhi ka Insaaf` and demanded that she should be booked for abatement of suicide.

Laxman (25) suffered from depression ever since he was humiliated at the reality TV show, following which he was admitted to Jhansi Medical College hospital on November 9, his family had claimed.

Unable to bear the ignominy, he stopped taking his food and eventually died on November 11, his uncle Balbir, who had also taken part in the programme, had alleged.
