Patna: JD (U) MLC Manorama Devi’s husband Bindi Yadav and the bodyguard arrested in connection with the alleged killing of a youth by their son Rocky in Gaya, were sent to a 14-day judicial custody on Monday.
Meanwhile, Bindi Yadav said it was part of political conspiracy that he was being targeted. “My son will surrender before the police,” he said.
The Bihar Police had yesterday arrested Bindi Yadav on charges of ‘criminal conspiracy and harbouring the accused.’ Aditya Sachdeva, the victim, was returning home after celebrating his birthday, when he overtook Rocky’s car.
“There was no enmity or friendship with the youth who died. Both of the sides were returning from Bodh Gaya. All five of them were under the influence of alcohol. Madam’s bodyguard was also with them. They overtook the car and stopped it. My son was driving the car. Four, five of them pulled him out the car and started beating him,” Bindi Yadav told ANI.
“The bodyguard came out of the car. During the scuffle, my son took out his licensed pistol in defence and by mistake it happened,” he added. A police official confirmed the death saying Sachdeva was returning to his home and he was shot dead.
Sachdeva ‘s friend Aayush, who was with him when this incident happened, said they tried overtaking their car, but the other side started firing shots in the air.
“One of them was wearing a commando dress. They assaulted my friends and fired shots because of which my friend died,” he added.
