Bharti to depose in HC within 2 weeks

New Delhi, Sept 27 (UNI) Bharati Yadav, the key witness in the Nitish Katara murder case and sister of prime accused Vikas Yadav, will depose in the court within two weeks, her counsel said today.

Vikas Yadav, son of controversial politician DP Yadav, is charged with murdering Nitish Katara in February 2002.

Bharti's counsel filed an affidavit before Justice A K Sikri in the Delhi High Court today asking for two weeks to come to the court.

Ccurrently studying in the UK, Bharati has been served 16 summons and many bailable and non-bailable warrants have been issued against her, but have not succeeded in ensuring her appearance before the court. If she failed to appear on the designated date, she would, in all probability, be proclaimed an offender, a rare case for a witness.

Her absence lent credence to the prosecution's allegation that she was stonewalling progress in a case in which her deposition could go against her own brother. The prosecution, basing its case on Bharati's affair with Nitish, attributed as the motive behind the murder.

Bharti's willingness to depose followed the rejection of her petition, seeking permission to depose through video conferencing, by the Supreme Court last week. A bench comprising Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice D K Jain then allowed Bharti to withdraw her petition.
