Dronavalli Harika surged back into joint lead in the girls' under-12 category with a finely crafted victory against compatriot Saheli Nath in the World Youth Chess Festival here. The win took Harika to six points, on par with Anna Muzychuk of Ukraine who has held to a draw by countrymate Kateryna Lahno in the seventh round. However, quite a few Indians like under-12 world champion Deep Sengupta, Eesha Karavade and G Rohit lost their matches in this 11-round tournament.
