Manjhi meets Modi, demands CBI probe into Gaya murder

New Delhi, May 12 (IANS) Former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi on Thursday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and sought a CBI enquiry into the murder on May 7 of a teenager in Gaya allegedly by the son of a ruling JD-U legislator.

“I met prime minister and urged him to hand over the Aditya Sachdeva murder case to the CBI,” Manjhi told reporters after the meeting.

Aditya, the teenaged son of a businessman, was shot dead on May 7 allegedly by Rocky Yadav, 30, for overtaking the latter’s vehicle on the Bodh Gaya-Gaya road.

Rocky was arrested on Tuesday and later sent in a 14-day judicial custody by a Gaya court.

He is son of Janata Dal-United (JD-U) member of the legislative council Manorama Devi, who has been evading arrest in a case pertaining to the recovery of liquor bottles from her residence in Gaya town.

“Everyday political murders are taking place in the state. Even Dalits are being murdered, most of which are not reported in the media. The law and order situation in state has collapsed,” said Manjhi, the founder of the Hindustani Awam Morcha (Secular).

The BJP, which fought the last Bihar assembly election in alliance with Manjhi’s party, has been continually attacking Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over law and order situation, asserting that the state has been “returning to the jungle raj”.

Following the killing of Aditya, Rocky’s father Bindi Yadav, a criminal-turned-politician, and a bodyguard were arrested and remanded in judicial custody by a court.
