Rocky Yadav sent to 14-day judicial custody


Gaya (Bihar): Janata Dal (United) MLC Manorama Devi’s son Rocky Yadav, accused of shooting dead a teenager for overtaking his SUV, was on Tuesday sent to 14-day judicial custody by a Gaya Court.

Moments after the Gaya Police claimed that Rocky Yadav confessed to shooting dead the teenager, the main accused offered a contradictory statement and said that he never fired any shots nor was he in hiding.

“All the allegations are completely baseless, I am innocent. I was not in the city that day,” Rocky told reporters.

Rakesh Yadav alias Rocky, the main accused in the alleged murder of teenager Aditya Sachdeva in a road rage case, was arrested in the wee hours today.

The police said that he was hiding inside a construction company office when the Special Task Force (STF) sleuths raided the place at 4 a.m. today.

The arrest took place a day after Rocky’s mother was interrogated.
