Aditya Sachdeva murder: Bihar MLC’s bail

Aditya Sachdeva murder: Bihar MLC’s bail plea hearing deferred

Patna, May 16 (IANS) A Bihar court on Monday deferred the hearing of anticipatory bail plea of Manorama Devi, a Janata Dal-United (JD-U) legislator and mother of Rocky Yadav, who is accused of murdering a businessman’s teenaged son, police said.

The Gaya civil court also asked for case diary and record of the lower court in this regard but did not give any date for next hearing, a district police official said.

Manorama Devi has been evading arrest since last Wednesday when a warrant was issued against her for harbouring her fugitive son who has since been arrested.

She has also been accused of keeping liquor in her home in Gaya town in violation of the state’s prohibition law.

Manorama Devi filed an anticipatory bail plea on Friday as the Gaya district administration said her house would be seized.

Authorities in Gaya last week cancelled the arms licences of Manorama Devi, who is a JD-U member of legislative council (MLC), and her husband Bindi Yadav, a criminal-turned-politician.

Her son Rocky Yadav was arrested last Tuesday from a house in Bodh Gaya for allegedly killing on May 7 Aditya Sachdeva, the teenaged son of a Gaya-based businessman, and was remanded in police custody.

Bindi Yadav is also in custody for allegedly helping Rocky escape after the murder.

Following the widespread outrage over the murder, the JD-U suspended Manorama Devi from its membership.

Aditya’s family has demanded a CBI investigation into the case and a speedy trial of the accused.

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.”
