The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the bail granted to a suspended Janata Dal (United) legislator's son in a road rage case where a teenager was killed, ANI reported. On October 20, the Patna High Court had granted bail to Manorama Devi's son Rocky Yadav, who is accused of shooting dead 19-year-old Aditya Sachdeva for overtaking his SUV, in which he was travelling with his bodyguard, on May 8.
The Bihar government had challenged Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav's bail in the apex court. The victim's father had said he would appeal to the government to take measures to save the state from "jungle raj". "We have all the proof with us, but still justice is denied; money and power has again silenced the truth," he said, while Aditya Sachdeva's mother had alleged that the high court had given its verdict in favour of the accused without even opening the case.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had set up a Special Investigating Team to locate the accused. Rocky Yadav was arrested on May 10. His father Bindi Yadav and bodyguard were also arrested in connection with the case. Manorama Devi was suspended from the JD(U) for trying to shield her son from being implicated for the murder.
