Katara case : Bharati on November 27

Bharati Yadav, sister of Vikas Yadav who is accused in the Nitish Katara murder case, has moved the trial court to arrange for video-conferencing to testify from London where she is studying.

In an application moved before additional sessions judge J. M. Malik, Bharati said her university had denied her leave as examinations were starting in December and studies are in full swing. "The university has declined to grant leave. Therefore, realising the importance of the matter, I may be permitted to depose through video-conferencing," she said.

The court listed the application for hearing on November 27.

Earlier, Bharati had requested the court to send her to-and-fro airfare so that she could come to Delhi to depose before it. The court had then said she could collect the fare from the Uttar Pradesh government after she turned up at the court to testify.

Bharati is a key witness in the case, as Katara was murdered on February 16 2002.

Katara was a Delhi-based businessman and studied in the same college as Bharati.

On the fateful day, Katara, who was sitting with Bharati at a friend's wedding in Ghaziabad, was allegedly taken out from the banquet hall by Vikas and Vishal on some pretext.

From there, he was kidnapped and then killed. His charred body was found a few days later on the roadside at Khurja in Uttar Pradesh.
