'I Was In Delhi' Claims Rocky Yadav, Arrested For Road Rage Killing In Bihar

“Rocky has confessed to the crime. He was arrested with his weapon. His SUV has also been seized,” police officer Garima Mallick said today.

Rocky Yadav, his face covered in black, was walked before the media. He told reporters: “I didn’t shoot anyone. I was in Delhi and came because my mother called me.”

The police sources say that he was followed down after his mother’s lengthy cross-examination at her Gaya home. After the incident, he was found in a factory near Bodh Gaya, which is 25 km from Gaya town.

Earlier on Monday, the mother of Rocky Yadav, Manorama Devi had said she was ill-fated that her husband Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav or Bindi Yadav – the father of Rocky had been arrested for assisting him in the escape process. The family of Aditya has urged Nitish Kumar to guarantee a quick and rational trial.

“The accused man’s family is very influential. We are very worried about intimidation tactics. The job of the police is to ensure justice,” said Sagar Sachdeva, Aditya’s older brother.

Police officer Garima Singh who is investigating the case said that they are bound to confirm that the suspect can’t frighten anybody. The whole family of the dead person, including Aditya’s parents and 85-year-old grandmother Jeevan Kaur, is still shell-shocked. When Aditya’s grandmother is asked about the arrest of Rocky Yadav, she wept a lot and she said my child is gone and is there any use of arresting that person?

The Deputy Inspector of Police said that no one belonging to any political party and relishing any political wallop will be safeguarded. During the investigation process, more arrests will take place as the case progresses.
