Rocky, son of suspended JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi and alleged history-sheeter Bindi Yadav, is accused of shooting and killing Aditya Sachdeva, a Class XII student who was driving his Maruti car, for overtaking his SUV on May 7 this year near Gaya.
A day after Rocky Yadav came out of jail, principal additional advocate general Lalit Kishore had said the state government would file an appeal in the Supreme Court challenging the bail granted to the accused by the high court.
Police had filed a chargesheet in a Gaya court against Rocky Yadav and another accused in connection with the murder. They had also filed charge sheet against Rocky’s cousin Teni Yadav, his father Bindi Yadav and his MLC mother’s bodyguard, Rajesh Kumar, in the murder case.
The state government had put the case on speedy trial and investigation was completed in three weeks and chargesheet filed within a month of the incident.
Rocky Yadav was facing two cases, one with the murder charges of Aditya Sachdeva and another under Excise Act for recovery of liquor bottles from the house of his mother. He was arrested from his father’s mixer plant in Gaya on May 10.
His name was included along with his father Bindi Yadav in the case of recovery of liquor bottles which were found when police raided his mother’s house looking for Rocky.
