Patna HC grants bail to accused in Gaya road rage murder of class 12 student
The parents of Aditya Sachdeva, a class 12 student, have lashed out at Patna High Court's decision to grant bail to the main accused, Rocky Yadav, in the murder of their son in a road rage case.

On May 7, Rocky Yadav had allegedly shot dead Aditya following an altercation over overtaking Yadav's vehcile.

Rocky's father is Bindi Yadav, a politician with a criminal past while his mother is Manorma Devi, a suspended Janata Dal-United MLC.

Bindi, along with his bodyguard were also arrested by the police for sheltering Rocky after he committed the crime. They are out on bail as well.

Rocky's lawyer YV Giri argued during the hearing of the case that there is no direct evidence to prove Rocky's involvement in the incident. Appearing for the government, advocate Dilip Kumar Sinha had argued that Rocky Yadav was the main accused in the case but failed to convince the court, which later granted bail to Rocky.

News agency ANI quoted Sachdeva's mother, Chand, saying that the court granted bail to Yadav "without even opening the case."

Shyam Sundar, Aditya's father has appealed the Bihar government to file a petition in the Supreme Court against the Patna High Court's bail order. He also said that if the government does not do so, he will personally move the SC.

"This is a very bad day for Bihar, I appeal to the government to take some measures to save Bihar from the jungle raj. We have all the proofs with us but still justice is denied, money & power has again silenced the truth," Sundar told ANI.
