Patna: A day after the Supreme Court put on hold a Patna High Court order that granted him bail, murder accused Rakesh Ranjan alias Rocky Yadav on Saturday surrendered in a Bihar court.
"Rocky, who arrived in Patna from Delhi on Saturday morning, surrendered in the Gaya Civil Court," a district police official said.
Rocky`s parents were also present in the court.
A district official in Gaya said Rocky was absconding soon after the Supreme Court cancelled his bail on Friday.
Rocky`s mother Manorama Devi, suspended Janata Dal-United MLC, told a police team that visited her house to arrest her son following the Supreme Court cancelled his bail that he will surrender in the court soon.
Rocky was accused of fatally shooting student Aditya Sachdeva after his Swift car overtook Rocky`s Land Rover on May 7.
Rocky was arrested on May 11.
Blocking implementation of the Patna High Court`s October 19 order that granted Rocky bail, an apex court bench of Justice SA Bobde and Justice Ashok Bhushan had yesterday observed: "The charge sheet has already been filed in the case and this may go against you."
The charge sheet has named Rocky and another man as co-accused in the murder case.
Seeking cancellation of Rocky`s bail, the Bihar government`s petition contended that "he has shot dead a young boy on the highway because he could not tolerate a small Swift car overtaking his big and imported Land Rover."
