Gaya:�Rocky Yadav, the son of a Bihar MLC, who allegedly shot dead a youth for overtaking his car in Gaya was arrested on Tuesday.
Son of JD(U) leader Manorama Devi, Rocky allegedly shot dead 19-year-old Aditya Sachdeva on Saturday night after the latter overtook his SUV. He had been on the run since.
Police had launched a massive manhunt to arrest Rocky Yadav. The arrest comes after JD(U) legislator Manorama Devi was questioned on Monday at her Gaya residence about the whereabouts of her son.
"Rocky Yadav was arrested at 2 am along with the murder weapon, a beretta pistol. He has confessed to his crime." Gaya SSP Garima Malik said.
The SSP said that we are recording Rocky's statement and he has accepted that he committed the crime. The arms licence is from Delhi and we have sent a team to Delhi for investigation.
My son will surrender in court soon as he has been told that a murder case has been lodged against him. But I have no information about his whereabouts," Manorma Devi told the media.
Earlier, Manorama Devi's husband Bindi Yadav and his bodyguard were arrested on charge of criminal conspiracy and harbouring the accused and were meanwhile sent to 14-day judicial custody by a Gaya court.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said his government will not spare anyone found guilty. "Anyone found guilty will not be spared; the law will take its course and a manhunt is on for the accused," he said.
