GAYA: The son of a ruling JD(U) legislator in Bihar, who was today arrested for the killing a youngster in a case of road rage, has claimed innocence, insisting he was in Delhi when the crime took place here.
"I was in Delhi...when my mother called me I came and presented myself before the SSP... I did not open fire," Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav told reporters as he was being whisked away by the police following a press conference held by SSP, Gaya, Garima Mallik where she announced his arrest.
"I'll tell everything in the court," he said.
Minutes earlier, Mallik had said Rocky was arrested from his father Bindi Yadav's mixer plant located in Mastpura village in Gaya district. His mother Manorama Devi is a ruling JD(U) MLC.
"The main accused Rocky Yadav was arrested from his father Bindi Yadav's mixer plant located at Mastpura village of Bodh Gaya Police Station of Gaya district. Rocky was arrested along with the weapon (Beretta pistol) used in the crime," Mallik told reporters.
Rocky had allegedly shot dead 20-year-old Aditya Sachdeva, son of a businessman, after the vehicle in which the victim and his friends were travelling had overtaken his SUV on Saturday night.
