Warrant against BJP MLA

Shimla: A local court on Saturday issued a warrant against a BJP legislator for “evading” a court notice in connection with a case of rioting filed against him. Chief Judicial Magistrate Yashwant Chogal issued a bailable warrant against Baldev Sharma for allegedly demonstrating against the state government in 2003 at the Ridge Maidan here, where organising protests is prohibited. Cases were also filed against party leaders Prem Kumar Dhumal, Sharma and others who were part of the protest.
