The Statesman,

NEW DELHI, Nov. 28: Putting at rest doubts over her arrival in India, Bharti Yadav, a key witness in the Nitish Katara murder case, today visited the passport office here in connection with her revoked travel documents.

Her face fully covered behind a hijab, Yadav who arrived here on Friday, is understood to have submitted her revoked passport to the officials of the ministry of external affairs at their office near the Patiala House Courts complex.

Yadav, who was accompanied by her lawyer, arrived at the MEA office around 11:30 a.m. and spent around 20 minutes there to sign papers for passport and visa in compliance with the High Court orders. Speculation was rife over Bharti’s arrival in India after a protracted legal wrangle and little was known about her whereabouts. She had not appeared in public so far, keeping the media guessing about her location.

Bharti, daughter of UP politician Mr Dharam Pal Yadav, is scheduled to depose before a local court in connection with the Nitish Katara murder case.
