The Delhi High Court on Wednesday adjourned to April 18, hearing of the petition filed by socialite Bina Ramani.

Ramani's petitionchallenges the "Look out notice" issued by the city police against the witnesses in the Jessica Lall murder case.

Ramani had moved the court on the ground that the notice issued by the police was arbitrary as she was a witness to the murder and not an accused.

She sought quashing of the petition, as it was "illegal" "arbitrary" and violated her personal liberty.

However, Justice Vikramjit Sen had earlier declined to quash the notice since the "re-investigation" ordered by the Government in the wake of the acquittal of all the accused was at a crucial stage.

He also refused to grant permission to Ramani to travel abroad for a marriage ceremony.

However, a division bench of Justice Manmohan Sarin and Justice Manju Goel on March 31 granted permission to the socialite to attend the marriage at Phuket, Thailand after imposing several conditions.

The bench while granting permission to attend the marriage refused to quash the 'lookout notice" and left the matter to be decided by the single judge.
