At this, the court cancelled bailable arrest warrants of Rabi Pirzada, which were issued on last hearing after she failed to appear in the court despite being summoned.
The department had pleaded in the complaint that the singer committed a violation of wildlife laws by keeping dangerous reptiles at home. It said the singer admitted in a social media video that she had been keeping the reptiles for the last five years. It asked the court to summon the singer and order legal action against her.
