GAYA (BIHAR): Parents of Aditya Sachdeva, who lost his life in the road rage, welcomed the court's decision, saying the faith in the judiciary is definitely restored.

Suspended Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) leader Manorama Devi's son Rocky Yadav, and three others have been pronounced guilty by a sessions court here in connection with the Gaya road rage case.

The quantum of sentence will be pronounced on September 6.

Aditya Sachdeva's mother Chand Sachdeva told ANI, "We thank the judiciary; it is a very big decision. It feels that the law does mean something and it has definitely restored our faith in judiciary."

She further thanked Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the police department who supported them in regards to the matter.

"Thanks to the Police department for collecting evidence and even thanks to the Chief Minister who visited our place and listened to the common man's plea," she mentioned.

Father Shyam Sachdeva thanked the judiciary for the decision, asserting that a positive message should go about the law among the people.

"We did not lose hope as our police, Government and the administration had promised and they had enough evidence. We hope that whatever the court will do or should do in the favor of the society," he said.

On March 6, the Supreme Court denied to vacate its order of cancelling the bail of Rocky Yadav in the case.

The Apex Court, earlier in October last year, stayed the bail granted by the Patna High Court to Yadav, who is the main accused in the killing of Aditya Sachdeva in the road rage case in Gaya on May 7.
 
Rakesh Ranjan Yadav, also known as Rocky, was granted bail by the Patna High Court earlier on October 19 last year.
 
The police arrested Rocky from his father Bindi Yadav's mixer plant in Gaya on May 10 last year.
 
Rocky's parents, accused of sheltering him while he was on the run after the murder, were recently granted bail.
 
The police filed a chargesheet in a Gaya court against Rocky and another accused in connection with this case.
 
They also filed charge sheets against Rocky's cousin Teni Yadav, his father Bindi Yadav and his MLC mother's bodyguard Rajesh Kumar in this connection.
 
The state government had put the case on speedy trial. The investigation was completed within three weeks and the chargesheet was filed within a month of the incident. (ANI)
