Bihar MLC's son held for road rage death

The Gaya police on Tuesday arrested Rocky Yadav, son of Janata Dal (United) MLC Manorma Devi, from Bodh Gaya in connection with the killing of Class XII student Aditya Sachdeva in a road rage attack.

Rocky was hiding in his father Bindi Yadav’s mixer plant in Bodh Gaya. The police have also recovered the foreign-made pistol used in the crime.

“The Gaya police arrested Rocky in the early hours of Tuesday, i.e at 2 am today, from Bodh Gaya where he was hiding at a business unit of his father,” Senior SP of Gaya Garima Mallik said.

“Rocky has confessed to his crime,” she added even as he denied his role in the killing.

“I did not fire at all. I was in Delhi. I have come here at the behest of my mother, who told me to surrender before the police in the case in which I have been named accused,” said Rocky when the police produced him before the media in Gaya.

“Rocky may have been arrested, but he will be out of jail in 6-month time. The only way to deliver us justice is to hang him at the earliest for killing my son,” said Shyam Sachdeva, Gaya-based businessman.

“Hang Rocky before my son’s Class XIIth result is out,” added Aditya’s mother Chanda Sachdeva. Aditya was shot dead by prime suspect Rocky for overtaking his SUV on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, ADG (Headquarters) Sunil Kumar assured speedy trial in the case. “The probe into the road rage incident would be over within three weeks and the chargesheet filed in a month,” the ADG said. Meanwhile, the JD (U) has suspended Manorma Devi from the party.
