A local court today rejected the bail petition of JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi, mother of the prime accused in Aditya Sachdeva murder, in a liquor bottle recovery case.
District and Sessions Judge Sajal Mandalwar rejected Manorama Devi’s bail petition.
On May 24, the judge had sought the case diary and proceedings of ACJM court in connection with the bail plea of the JD(U) MLC. The ACJM court had rejected her bail plea on May 19.
Devi’s counsel prayed for her bail on the ground that she neither drinks nor was caught drinking by the police during the raid at her residence in search of her absconding son Rocky Yadav last week.
She was booked under the Excise Act after liquor bottles were recovered from her residence at A P Colony of the town during the police raid following which she went into hiding for a couple of days before surrendering in a court on May 17.
The MLC’s son Rocky Yadav allegedly shot dead Class XII student Aditya Sachdeva for overtaking his car. The JD(U) had suspended Manorama Devi for harbouring her son, while the Gaya police arrested her husband Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav alias Bindi Yadav and her body guard.
Meanwhile, Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) Om Sagar rejected the bail petition of Teni Yadav, named in the FIR in Sachdeva murder case.
Teni had surrendered on May 16 before a local court and was remanded to judicial custody.
Teni was allegedly travelling in the SUV with Rocky and Manorama Devi’s bodyguard Rajesh Kumar, when Aditya was shot dead on May 7 near police lines under Rampur police station area after Rocky’s vehicle was overtaken by the car in which Aditya and his friends were sitting.
