Gaya road rage: Court to hear JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi's bail plea on May 19

Gaya: A court in Gaya will hear the anticipatory bail plea of suspended JD (U) MLC Manorama Devi on May 19.

Earlier today, the hearing of the bail plea was deferred by the court, after it asked for case diary and record of the lower court.

"The hearing took place today. The judge has asked for the case diary. Her name is not there in the FIR. We have not got any next date. We said that she has been falsely trapped," Devi's lawyer Kaisar Sarfuddin was quoted as saying by ANI.

Devi had filed an anticipatory bail in the court on May 13 after an arrest warrant was issued against her over liquor prohibition.

The Gaya Police had last week sealed the house of the suspended JD (U) legislator, who is said to be on the run after an arrest warrant was issued against her under the new state excise law.

Devi's son Rakesh Ranjan Yadav, alias Rocky, and her husband Bindi Yadav are already in jail over the killing of Aditya Sachdeva, a businessman's son, in a case of road rage last week.
