Patna: Pressure is mounting on Rocky Yadav, the son of Legislative Council member Manorma Devi of the ruling Janata Dal (United) (JD-U), to surrender after he allegedly shot dead Aditya Sachdeva, the teenaged son of a businessman, on Saturday night for overtaking his car on the Bodh Gaya-Gaya road.
Meanwhile, normal life was badly hit today in Bihar's Gaya town by a shutdown called by BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to protest against the killing of Aditya.
Rocky's father Bindi Yadav, a criminal-turned-politician, was with him in the car along with a bodyguard.
While Rocky has been absconding since the incident, his father and the bodyguard were arrested. Meanwhile, Bindi Yadav has asked the authorities to free him so that he could get his son to surrender.
This latest incident has vindicated his stand that "jungle raj" has returned to Bihar, BJP's Prem Kumar, who represents Gaya town in the Assembly, has said.
Police said its preliminary investigation shows that Rocky got into a fit of rage after Aditya's car allegedly did not let his Land Rover vehicle pass. The row resulted in the teenager being shot dead.
The accused's vehicle has been recovered from his parents' house, police said.
Bindi Yadav has a criminal record. He was earlier arrested after a huge cache of cartridges of AK 47 was recovered from him.
