Anna Hazare
New Delhi, May 3: A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking action against anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare and his team members for allegedly showing disrespect to the national flag during his agitation for Lokpal Bill.

The petitioner LK Venkat, a Chennai resident, alleged that during the agitation in December last year the associates of Harare had shown disrespect to the national flag and the government failed to take any action despite a complaint filed against them.

He has made Hazare and his associates Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal parties in the case.

"During the course of the agitation, Hazare and his associates had flown the national flag at half mast in public and also shown the flag on the ground in public and also mutilated and defaced the flag," the petitioner alleged. "The petitioner had already made the representations before the concerned authorities but they failed to take any action in the matter against them," the petitioner said.
