Key witness in the Nitish Katara case, Bharti Yadav, who is in India to testify in the high profile murder case, is fit to make her statement before the trial court, her advocate said on Wednesday.
Bharti, who has not appeared before the court for the last four years, was provided with emergency travel documents after she agreed to depose. She arrived in New Delhi last week.
Bharti's whereabouts are being kept secret to protect her from the media glare, her advocate S C Bhuttan said.
"I had a good meeting with her on Monday. The meeting lasted 15 to 20 minutes and she is fit enough to make a statement," Bhuttan said.
Bharti's testimony in the case is crucial as she had in her statement to police earlier stated that she saw her brothers Vishal and Vikas with Nitish before his disappearance. He was later found murdered.
