Suspended JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi surrenders, sent to 14-day judicial custody; blames BJP for falsely implicating her
Manorama Devi's son Rakesh Ranjan Yadav, alias Rocky, and her husband Bindi Yadav are already in jail over the killing of Aditya Sachdeva
Patna: Manorama Devi, a Janata Dal-United (JD-U) legislator and mother of Rocky Yadav, who is accused of murdering a businessman's teenaged son, Tuesday, surrendered before acourt in Gaya for allegedly violating liquor prohibition law.
The court sent her to 14-day judicial custody.
Speaking to the media, DEvi said, "I am being falsely implicated under political conspiracy, BJP is behind all this."
She completely dismissed the reports that liquor bottles were found from her house.
Devi had filed an anticipatory bail in the court on May 13 after an arrest warrant was issued against her over liquor prohibition. The court will hear the anticipatory bail plea on May 19.
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.
With Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar asserting that no guilty will be spared, police promised to file a charge sheet within a month.
Additional Director General of Police (Headquarters) Sunil Kumar said: "Police have been working to complete investigations in the case within three weeks. The charge sheet will be filed within a month to ensure speedy trial."
