Gaya road rage: Court asks suspended legislator Manorama Devi to appear by May 20

Patna: A Gaya court on Saturday issued a notice to suspended Janata Dal United (JDU) legislator Manorama Devi in connection with murder of class 12 student Aditya Sachdev in road rage. 

The court in its notice directed Manorama Devi and her lawyer to appear before it by May 20 and said that action will be taken if she failed to appear in person. 

Acting tough on the suspended legislator, the court mentioned that no extension will be provided to the leader and they will see that rule of law remains intact in the state. 

Bihar lawmaker Manorama Devi, whose son Rocky Yadav was arrested for a road rage killing, on Friday had applied for anticipatory bail. She faces arrest for violating the prohibition law in the state.

In her bail petition, applied through her lawyer, Manorama Devi said that she has not committed any offense and is being falsely implicated. 

Ms Devi has been absconding since an arrest warrant was issued against her on May 11 after a liquor stash was found at her house in Gaya during the raids. According to excise officials, six liquor bottles were recovered from her place. During the raid, police also seized the pistol used by her son Rocky in the crime.

The police carried a search at her place for her son, who had gone into hiding after allegedly killing a teenager for overtaking his Range Rover in Gaya on May 7.
