In a tragic incident, a 20-year-old youth was shot dead allegedly by ruling JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi’s son Rocky for overtaking his vehicle near police line in Bihar’s Gaya district.
According to PTI, Devi’s husband Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav alias Bindi Yadav and her security guard Rajesh Kumar were today arrested in connection with the incident.
DIG, Magadh Range, Saurabh Kumar said the incident took place last night as JD(U) MLC’s son Rocky Kumar Yadav and his men were travelling in a MUV which intercepted a SUV in which Aditya Kumar Sachdeva (20) was travelling along with four friends from Bodh Gaya to Gaya town.
Several media reports suggested that the alleged criminals fired in air warning the victim to stop the car.
According to complaint lodged with the police, Rocky Kumar Yadav then shot at Sachdeva apparently to teach him a lesson for overtaking his vehicle.
The DIG said Sachdeva was brought to Anugrah Narayan Medical College and Hospital where the attending doctors declared him as brought dead.
A manhunt is underway for the arrest of Rocky Kumar Yadav too, the DIG said.
The latest incident involving a family member of the ruling party is bound to put Chief Minister Nitish Kumar under fresh criticism over deteriorating law and order in the state.
