Uma trial will continue: Hubli court

An arrest warrant has been issued against Bharti by a Hubli court in a 10-year-old riot case.

On August 14-16, 1994, way before the Bharatiya Janata Party came to hold the reins of power at the Centre, Bharti led an agitation and hoisted the tricolour at the Idgah Maidan in Hubli, Karnataka.

Since the ground was disputed, and the BJP activists had defied an order banning assembly at the spot, a criminal case was filed against Bharti and 21 others.

Bharti on Monday said she will unfurl the national flag at the same ground on Tuesday.
