November 27, 2006 15:39 IST
Bharti Yadav, a key prosecution witness in the 2002 Nitish Katara murder case, Monday met her lawyer two days ahead of her crucial and long-delayed deposition in a local court.
Amid speculation about her whereabouts, she met lawyer S C Bhuttan and is understood to have discussed details of the case in which her brother Vikas Yadav and cousin Vishal Yadav are the main accused.
Bharti, daughter of Uttar Pradesh politician D P Yadav, had arrived in India on November 23 from London, sources said. Her arrival preceded a protracted legal wrangle.
However, she has not appeared in public so far, keeping the media guessing about her whereabouts. She had arrived in Mumbai on a Jet Airways flight and was handed over to the immigration authorities, who completed the necessary formalities, as she was travelling on an emergency landing certificate, the sources said.
Bhuttan, however, refused to divulge what transpired between the two. "It's between a client and a lawyer. I cannot say anything on that," he told PTI.
