Bharti Yadav, the elusive key witness in the Nitish Katara murder case, wason Fridaydirected by a Delhi Court to appear before it on November 25 for recording her statement.

The order to this effect was passed by Additional Sessions Judge Ravinder Kaur after Bharti's counsel SC Bhuttan gave an undertaking that she will appear before the court on November 25 for her testimony in the case, in which her brother and cousin are the main accused.

The advocate has been engaged by Bharti's maternal uncle Bharat Singh. The counsel told the court that Bharti, who is pursuing studies in United Kingdom, will be staying in India from November 25 to 28.

The court on September 28 had directed the counsel to take instruction from Bharti and inform when she would appear for recording of her statement.

The Court had kept in abeyance the proclamation notice issued against Bharti, daughter of Uttar Pradesh Politician DP Yadav.

Bharti's brother and cousin Vikas and Vishal are accused of kidnapping and murdering Nitish with whom she had an intimate relationship.17 witnesses in the case have turned hostile.
