Rocky Yadav, who is accused of killing 19-year-old Aditya Sachdeva for overtaking his SUV in May this year, surrendered before Gaya district court on Saturday, ANI reported. This comes a day after the Supreme Court stayed his bail in the case.
On October 20, the Patna High Court had granted bail to the son of suspended Janata Dal (United) lawmaker Manorama Devi. However, the state government had challenged the court's decision 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. 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 look into the case. Rocky Yadav was arrested on May 10, two days after the incident. His father Bindi Yadav and his bodyguard, who was with the accused during the incident, 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.
