Bharti Yadav: Centre asked to explain

October 17, 2006 19:08 IST

The Delhi high court on Tuesday asked the Centre to explain its stand on Bharti Yadav's plea for release of her passport and extension of visa to enable her to depose in the Nitish Katara murder case.  

Justice A K Sikri passed the direction on an application moved by Bharti Yadav that she apprehended arrest after her deposition as authorities had already impounded her passport.  

She also submitted through counsel R K Kapoor that her visa would expire on November 25, five days after she is supposed to depose in the case.
