Gaya road rage: Accused Rocky Yadav sent to 14-day judicial custody

Patna: Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav, the son of ruling JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi was on Tuesday sent to 14-day of judicial custody. 

Rocky is accused of killing a class 12 student Aditya Sachdev in a fit of rage after the latter overtook his vehicle on the night of May 7.

Rocky, after coming out of the court, told media that he doesn't know who Aditya Sachdev and said that he has full faith in the judicial system and hopes that justice will be done in this case too. 

Earlier today, after he was arrested from his father's mixer plant in the district, apparently tried to prove his innocence and claimed that he didn't gun down anybody and was infact in Delhi when the incident took place. 

The Bihar police, that conducted several raids across Gaya and arrested the killer brat son of the JDU MLC, said that the accused will be subjected to a speedy trial.

When pointed out that Yadav denied opening fire, the ADGP said, "No accused confesses that he has committed crime. Let him say whatever he is saying. He will get opportunity during trial."

"So far as police are concerned, we have enough evidence to prove his guilt in the case. We have circumstantial evidence, scientific evidence, weapon and vehicle used in the crime, statements of witnesses under 164 of CrPC," he said, hours after the Gaya police nabbed the accused.

Stating that two accused persons — Rocky's father Bindi Yadav and bodyguard Rajesh Kumar — have already been arrested, Kumar said that efforts are on to nab another accomplice Tany Yadav, who was present in the SUV and is absconding.

A forensic science laboratory team has been sent to Gaya from Patna to collect scientific evidence such as fingerprints and ballistic evidence which would be helpful in proving the case, he said.
